In a significant move towards enhancing road safety and reducing distracted driving, the Florida Bicycle Association has thrown its full support behind the Hands-Free Florida campaign. This momentous decision was solidified as the Association’s board of directors voted overwhelmingly in September to make the campaign an upcoming legislative priority.

Hands-Free Florida, an advocacy initiative aimed at curbing the perilous practice of using mobile phones while driving, has gained traction in recent months across the Sunshine State. With the backing of Florida Bicycle and cycling supporters, the campaign is poised to make an even more significant impact on road safety and the protection of vulnerable road users, including cyclists.

Distracted driving remains a grave concern nationwide, with Florida being no exception. In just three recent years, distracted driving caused more than 160,000 crashes and 935 deaths statewide. The consequences of a momentary lapse in concentration behind the wheel can be catastrophic, particularly for those who share the road on two wheels. Cyclists often find themselves in precarious situations, and reducing distracted driving is a crucial step towards ensuring their safety.

“Endorsing Hands-Free Florida underscores our unwavering commitment to creating safer streets for people bicycling, and for all roadway users,” said Kelly Morphy, Executive Director of Florida Bicycle Association. “By prioritizing this campaign at the legislative level, we intend to send the message that safety on Florida’s roads is paramount, and the devastating impact of distracted driving on people using bicycles can’t be ignored.”

This decision to endorse the campaign has been met with support from both the cycling community and safety advocates alike. Florida Bicycle will issue calls-to-action and share details about the campaign and proposed legislation starting in the Fall, via e-newsletters, social media and other communications.

Information about the statewide campaign is at HandsFreeFlorida.org.
