What is this Indicator?
This indicator shows the number of bicyclists killed in traffic collisions per 100,000 population.
Why this is important: 
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, over 700 people die and over 500,000 people are treated in emergency departments as a result of bicycle-related injuries. Children are at an increased risk for bicycle-related injuries. Most deaths occur as a result of bicycle and motor vehicle crashes.

Head injuries are the most serious type of injury and the most common cause of death for bicyclists. Bicycle helmets have been proven to reduce the risk of head and brain injury when a crash occurs by as much as 85 to 88 percent.
Technical Note:  The regional value is compared to the Florida state value.
