Yesterday, a bicyclist was caught on video in Miami traveling on I-95 South during rush hour traffic.



While this is a terrible idea (and very illegal), Florida is one of the least bike-friendly states in the country. In fact, seven out of the 10 worst cities in the country for pedestrian and bicycle deaths are located in Florida, including Orlando.
