Our hearts are heavy with grief over the tragic incident that took place last night, resulting in the loss of a cherished member of our community Megan Andrews.  She was not only a long-standing Key Biscayner but also an esteemed educator who positively impacted the lives of countless children and their families.


Our Village government had been diligently working towards implementing regulations for electric bicycles, while simultaneously operating an education and enforcement campaign within the community. Unfortunately, our efforts were hindered by state laws that prohibited us from enacting the necessary measures to ensure safety. The Village has actively engaged with legislators in Tallahassee, advocating for changes to these laws, understanding the urgent need to protect our community. Regrettably, our pleas have gone unanswered.

This heartbreaking incident serves as a poignant reminder of the importance of responsible regulation. We must continue to push for legislative changes to empower local governments to address safety concerns effectively. Our community’s safety should never be compromised, and we will persist in our efforts to ensure that such tragedies are prevented in the future.

Tomorrow the Village Council will hold an emergency meeting on banning all electric bikes and scooters within the Village. For today, as we mourn the loss of a remarkable individual, let us unite as a community to remember her legacy, support her family, and work towards a safer future. Together, we can honor her memory by advocating for change and pushing for necessary reforms that protect the lives of our residents.

Allison McCormick is the vice mayor of Key Biscayne
