This week urban design activist organization, Smart Growth America, through its National Complete Streets Coalition, published Dangerous by Design 2014, a pedestrian safety report. Dangerous by Design 2014 identifies four Florida metropolitan areas, including Miami-Fort Lauderdale, as the four most dangerous metropolitan areas for pedestrians nationwide. Smart Growth America advocates for smart growth solutions as many American cities are undergoing urban revitalization. As you drive through south Florida’s urban centers, you may have noticed signs in the middle of the road warning drivers to yield to pedestrians. These and other safety precautions help lessen the number of pedestrian accidents. A pedestrian accident usually results in catastrophic personal injury or wrongful death. Drivers are required by Florida law to share the road with pedestrians but they often do not. Please be extra careful when driving by pedestrians to help prevent a pedestrian accident and the resulting personal injury.
