Though bicyclists and pedestrians represent just two percent of commuters in Palm Beach County, they made up a whopping 30 percent of all transportation-
"These are our most vulnerable users and they're a large disproportionate share of the total fatalities,'' said Weinroth, who is vice chair of the TPA governing board. Weinroth called on local leaders to take "a more proactive approach" aimed at preventing accidents, similar to the intense effort given to airline crash investigations.
Attorney Michael Pike adds that during Covid-19 the number of crashes seems to be going to in the wrong direction: "There is an uptick in the number of accidents involving pedestrians and bicyclists because of surges in health and fitness during the pandemic combined with speeding and empty roads. It's critical that both vehicles and bicyclists need to be more aware during this time."
