The Jacksonville Bicycle Coalition has launched a petition for safer streets for the people of Jacksonville. They note that Jacksonville is the third most dangerous city in the nation regarding pedestrians and cyclists and Jacksonville’s low ranking in safety is like the rest of Florida. They cite Transportation for America’s “Dangerous By Design” 2011 study, identifying that the four most dangerous cities in America are all located in Florida – 1) the areas of Orlando / Kissimmee, 2) the areas of Tampa / St. Petersburg / Clearwater, 3) Jacksonville, and 4) the areas of Miami / Fort Lauderdale / Pompano Beach.
This petition will be given to the Mayor and lawmakers. For more information or to sign the petition:
