Bicyclist and pedestrian crashes and the resulting deaths and serious injuries are a serious concern for Martin County. Florida has consistently had the highest pedestrian and bicyclist fatality ratio in the United States; Martin County’s percentage of pedestrian and bicyclist fatalities continue to surpass the State’s percentages. Approximately 15% of traffic fatalities within the last two years in Martin County is a pedestrian or a bicyclist. This data underscores a need to improve bicycling and walking conditions in Martin County. Within the last two years the MPO Policy Board adopted the Complete Streets:  Access to Transit Study and the Vision Zero Plan to assist with improving safety.
