The law offices of Shapiro Goldman Babboni Fernandez & Walsh urge all cyclists to take extreme care when attempting to cross our busy streets. We have seen too many instances when a cyclist is struck while attempting to cross, Tamiami Trail, 301, Fruitville Road and many others. It’s important for cyclists to remember that motorists are looking out for other vehicles and will often simply not notice an approaching cyclist even in broad day light.
