The interaction between cyclists and motorists a very dangerous one, especially in the South Florida area. Drivers and riders have a very tenuous relationship, with odd laws about sharing the road and disallowing cyclists on sidewalks, but not really having the necessary infrastructure to support cyclists on the major roads that criss-cross Miami and the South Florida area. Accidents between cars, trucks, and buses and cyclists are some of the most deadly, as the recent crash in Hialeah has demonstrated.
