Florida Cycling Gets Underway

MacArthur Causeway is the improbable pathway of bike in the world. The road connects to the proper Miami with the beach of Miami. The correspondent notices a cyclist all alone crossing the traffic in the road though in the right hand side a path is laid down for the cyclists.

The road has 6 lanes which are wide. Every day the traffic strucks the road and it gets dicey for the cyclists to turn and spin on the road. Collisions are frequent and cyclists get injured and die due to the accidents. The rate of accidents for the cyclist death and injury is much higher in Florida than the normal rate. Even pedestrians walking down the road get disoriented. It is evident that death is inevitable but safety measures is has to be taken as far as road is concerned. Traffic has increased over the years and the design of roads has also become so poor that the cyclists have no option but to take the course in their stride.

The expressway of MacArthur is an area which causes maximum problems. Pedestrians are attacked with the crashing of cars and cycles. Many cities in Florida are new hence the roads are not developed. The government of Florida is trying their level best to address the issue fairly and promptly. The sidewalks seem to be disappearing and reduction of accidents is what the government is rooting for.

Much of the problem is caused due to the rise in population and doldrums of economy not ceasing to stop. Cities have to be connected to the suburb so changes in the pattern of roads are seen. How far the government becomes successful in tackling the problem is yet to be seen. Curtailment of accidents is a must and safety of the cyclist as well.
