I was pleased to read the Sept. 7 article FDOT to upgrade bicycle route on Tuttle Causeway. Too often we read about accidents involving bicycles. Development and use of bicycle routes is the right solution.
Encouraging bicyclists to ride on public roads with campaigns, such as Share the Road, is misguided. It’s clearly a hazard to have nonmotorized bicycles and motorized vehicles on the same road, and now it seems that Share the Road has become “Take Over the Road.”
Instead of riding single file, large groups of bicycles now regularly take up the entire roadway, frustrating motorists who end up trailing in a long line waiting to pass. To ensure the safety of bicyclists, steps need to be taken to limit road sharing by developing bicycle-friendly routes.
