Why are there so many bike accidents in Orlando?
The Orlando metro area has a population of over 2 million people and hosts about 60 million tourists each year. Orlando is home to Walt Disney World, Universal Studios and SeaWorld. In 2013, Orlando made approximately $33 billion in tourist revenues and has firmly established itself as a top worldwide tourist destination. Due to the Orlando area's favorable climate, many of these tourists rent bicycles to cruise around Orlando's attractions. As one would imagine, Orlando bicycle accidents occur frequently.
Orlando Bike Accident Facts and Statistics
A recent study of bicyclist/motorist accidents in the Orlando regional area reveals that in a one year period, there were almost 1,000 bicyclists hit by cars in Orlando bike accidents. The study, completed by Metropolitan Orlando, was conducted by gathering bike crash police reports from the Florida Highway Patrol for bike accidents that occurred in Orange, Seminole and Osceola Counties. Sadly, many of the Orlando bike crashes that were incorpated in the study involved minor children who were hurt when hit by cars. The study also indicates that riding your bike at night and bicycling while intoxicated greatly increased your chances of being injured in a bike accident. Based on the statistics from the study, more Orlando bicycle accidents occurred in low income neighborhoods, tourist areas and streets near schools.
