FDOT Public Records 8 ______________________________________________________________________________________________
 
2 September 2020


Mr. Krumbholx,

What I really want to know is how many of the 1,557 killed in Florida's Misplaced Wheelchair Curb Cuts are women and children.

Are you saying the FDOT installs Mid-Block Crosswalks but does not keep track of who is killed in the Crosswalks?

The FDOT has been abusing and misrepresenting the ADA for many years.  I am going to do my best to expose your fraud .  We are filing ADA Fraud complaints with the USDOJ.

The FDOT knows they are violating Federal Safety Standards but cares more about Contractor Profits than Pedestrian Safety.

There may be no penalty or consequences for violating Safety Standards,  But, the ADA is Law.  ADA Fraud is Criminal and Deadly.

Officials at the FDOT should be criminally charged with 1,557 counts of manslaughter.  We are going to do our best to send some of you Corrupt Officials to jail.

Mr. Redding,

 

I am following up on your above referenced public records requests for:

 

2018 Pedestrian fatalities by Gender at Marked and un-marked Mid-Block Crosswalks / Pedestrian Safety Islands, on Multiple Lane Roads, with AADT of 40,000 or above, and with Speed Limits of 40mph or Above.

 

The Florida Department of Transportation does not have an inventory of marked and unmarked mid-block crosswalks. Additionally, Florida Public Records laws only apply to existing documents and therefore do not require a custodian of public records to create a new record in response to a request or to extract information from existing records. (See Chapter 119, Florida Statutes).

 

Again, please note that the official custodian of Florida Traffic Crash Report data in Florida is the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (FLHSMV). Because FLHSMV is the official custodian of the crash reports, their database is the official crash records database for Florida and the numbers that they report are the official numbers for the state. Please see https://www.flhsmv.gov/traffic-crash-reports/ for more information.

 

If you would like to request data or reports directly from the FLHSMV, they have a Crash Public Records Unit (CPRU) which handles the requests for reports and data. The CPRU can be contacted at CrashPRR@flhsmv.gov or by phone at 850-617-3416, option 1.

 

Thank you for contacting the Florida Department of Transportation.

 

Respectfully,

 

Daniel Krumbholz

Mr. Krumbholz,

Please stop pretending that you and the FDOT don't know the difference between;

1.  Interaction Deaths
2.  Non-Intersection Deaths or Mid-Block Deaths
3.  Marked Mid-Block Crosswalk Deaths
4.  Unmarked Mid-Block Crosswalk Deaths

I have asked you several times to Fulfill the Public Request that I paid $104.17.  If you do not respond I will be forced to file complaints with your superiors, OSHA, the ethics board, etc...

1.  I want you to return my $104.17 because the Public Information I requested is easily accessible without any sort of Redaction or Clerical Fees.

2.  I want you to tell me howny of the 4,500 and how many of the 1,557 from my previous Requests are Females.

3.  Please fill in the missing Data Below?:

The FDOT charged me $104.17 for a  CD with 153  .pdf image files of Crash Reports.  I specifically asked them not to send me any image files because I was blind.  This is not what I asked or paid for.  Please contact the FDOT and tell them that you would also like to know how many of the 4500 and 1,557 killed are women and children.

Hello?

Are you going to reply and fulfill my Public Records Request and tell me how many Females have been killed in Florida's Marked and Unmarked Mid-Block Crosswalks?

Thank you,

July 16th, 2020

Mr. Krumbholz:

Perhaps my request will be easier to fulfill if I drop the age (adult/child) portion of the request.

Can you simply tell me how many of the 4500 ki8lled at Marked Mid-Block Crosswalks since 2000 are Female? And, how many of the 1,557 pedestrians killed since 2007 in Unmarked Mid-Block crosswalks are Female?

This is Public Information that the FDOT has which can be easily provided with a simple database query.

Dear Mr. Krumbholz:

I was able to open one of the files you sent.  I did not ask for, or pay for individual Crash Reports..  I asked for the Male/Female and Adult/Child Data to be extracted from my two previous Public Records Requests.  This is not complicated.  Why are you not fulfilling this simple request?  Please review the prior requests and email me the information requested.

If you do not understand this Request, then please let me help clear up any confusion.

See:

Dear Mr. Krumbholz (FDOT) and Ms. McKenzie (DOT):

I am sorry you are having difficulty understanding my Records Request and will attempt to clearly clarify.  

I am researching Mid-Block Crosswalk Fatalities, Male vs Female, Adult vs Child, at Marked vs Unmarked Mid-Block Crosswalks on High Speed, High Traffic, Multiple Lane Roads..

The FDOT has responded to two previous Public Records Requests. 

1.  Between 2000 and 2019 the FDOT reported 4500 Fatalities at Marked Mid-Block Crosswalks.

2.  Between 2007 and 2019 The FDOT reported 1557 Fatalities at Unmarked Mid-Block Crosswalks.  The FDOT reported they have no Records for Fatalities at Unmarked Mid-Block Crosswalks prior to 2007.

I simply want to know of the two above Record Matches how many were Female, and how many were under 18 years of age?  There should be no charge for redaction and clerical costs.

This is Public Information that the FDOT and DOT can easily provide with a simple Database Query.  This Data should be released within a timely manner in accordance with Florida Sunshine Laws and the Freedom Of Information Act.

‚ÄčThank you for your time and consideration.  Please be safe out there.

Very Respectfully,
