Fort Lauderdale Bicycle Accident
Fort Lauderdale, situated in South Eastern Florida, in Broward County, is one of the major cities in the state. The city sees millions of visitors each year, and is sometimes called the "Venice of America" because of its waterways and canals. In fact, the city is known for its boating lifestyle, with many people in the city owning boats and with many boat operators in the area. Fort Lauderdale also has many yachts and is a major port of call for cruise ships. The city and its immediate area also have over 120 night clubs and more than 4000 restaurants, so it is a place with a very vibrant nightlife.
In addition to seeing Fort Lauderdale by gondola or by boat, bicycling is a popular recreation in the city and a great way to see the region. Unfortunately, although there are many bicyclists in the city and although the city has taken great strides to provide safe bicycling areas for residents and visitors, each year many people are injured or killed in Fort Lauderdale bicycle accidents.
