Most Dangerous Streets in America

Those figures don't surprise me one bit. Only Los Angeles raises a bit of question, but LA isn't so bad when you really think about it.

When I was a teenager (the mid 90s) I used to bike around much of south Jacksonville. No sidewalks in many areas, and not a single bike lane anywhere during that time. Even today, I can't think of many roads that have them.

On one particular four-lane road, I almost got hit by a car once and also got blown into a ditch by a passing semi-trailer (we were in the "Jacksonville bike lane" aka the white line at the edge of the pavement). My friend even got hit by a car once (he was unharmed). The traffic is so much worse now and I can't imagine trying to safely bike around anywhere useful.

Wondering if San Francisco will make the 2005 list; I think 12 deaths this year?

It's no wonder why so many Florida cities are on the list. We have crazy drivers around here.

Tallahassee has 24 traffic-related fatalities this year, so we might be on the list this year.
