An Open Letter To Governor Charlie Crist and the Florida Department of Transportation

Has anyone considered starting a letter writing Campaign here?

Dear Governor Crist,

As you may know a recent report produced jointly by the Surface Transportation Policy Partnership and Transportation for America has shown that the following four metropolitan areas within Florida are the most dangerous cities for pedestrians in the United States.

1. Orlando-Kissimmee, FL

2. Tampa-St. Petersburg-Clearwater, FL

3. Miami-Fort Lauderdale-Pompano Beach, FL

4. Jacksonville, FL

The report titled “Dangerous By Design” concludes that Florida roads are dangerous for pedestrians because they have generally been designed to speed up -not slow down-traffic. read more here
