WEST BOCA RATON – Every new construction, or resurfacing project, on state roads in Florida will now include improvements to bike lanes.
The idea is to create more space between drivers and bicyclists on the road.
“I ride almost every day,” says Stuart Abramson.
And when he’s on his bike, Abramson keeps an eye on drivers.
“People texting, talking on the phone,” some of the actions he says he sees.
He’s never been hit by a car, but says clients at his West Boca Raton bike shop, Stuart’s Wild Ride, have.
“Cars are coming very, very fast,” he explains.
