Since 2004, the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) has prioritized resources and technical assistance to states and cities that exhibit the highest pedestrian and bicycle fatalities and/or fatality rates. Through this Focused Approach to Safety, the state of Florida was designated as a Focus State, and the City of Jacksonville was designated a Focus City. In 2021, these designations were adjusted, as detailed in a USDOT memo, to include Focus States and Focus MPO/Regions. Currently, Florida remains a Focus State, and Jacksonville is located within a designated Focus MPO/Region (North Florida Transportation Planning Organization region).
The following list provides links to several resources for bicycle and pedestrian crash data:
  • Signal Four Analytics provide an interactive dashboard and analytics system receives data, derived from Florida’s statutory custodian of records, the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (FLHSMV).
  • The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) has an Open Data Hub where bike-ped crash data for each year is mapped/detailed by searching for “Florida NonMotorist Fatal and Serious Injuries” using their queries tool.
  • The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles provide their informational Traffic Crash Facts Report annually “to provide lawmakers, partners and stakeholders, the media, and citizens with important facts and valuable information related to public safety and motor services.”
