    Florida leads the nation in bicyclist fatalities and is in the top 10 in pedestrian fatalities. Part of the cause is due to the retired population, but part of the issue is that many of our roads have little or no shoulder. Look at the top picture above. The white line is practically painted on the grass. I understand that adding a few feet outside the lanes would increase the cost of the roads, but I think it would be money well spent.
