Alert Today Florida
Saint Lucie County ranks in the top 25 counties in the state for traffic crashes resulting in severe and fatal injuries to pedestrians and bicyclists.
To protect the safety of these most vulnerable road users, the Fort Pierce Police Department will conduct High Visibility Enforcement (HVE) from August 26, 2022, through May 12, 2023. Enforcement will be conducted in the areas of North 25th Street (From Delaware to Avenue E), Lakefront Boulevard (to Edwards Road), and Midway Road (to the north of Weatherbee). Additionally, from February 1, 2023, to May 12/2023, the Department will include U.S. 1 (from Gardenia to Ohio Avenue). It has been determined that these areas are over-represented in traffic crashes resulting in severe injuries to pedestrians and bicyclists.
HVE details are funded through a contract with the University of North Florida in partnership with the Department of Transportation’s focused initiative to improve pedestrian and bicycle safety.
The goal of this enforcement is to increase awareness and compliance with traffic laws that protect the safety of pedestrians and bicyclists.
Enforcement efforts will focus primarily on educating drivers, pedestrians, and bicyclists. However, violations may result in a warning or citation.
DO YOUR PART FOR THE SAFETY OF EVERYONE ON THE ROAD:
Drivers- obey speed limits, never drive impaired, and always watch for pedestrians and bicyclists.
Bicyclists- obey traffic laws, ride in the direction of traffic, and use lights when riding at night.
Pedestrians- cross only in crosswalks or at intersections. Obey pedestrian signals, and make sure you are visible to drivers when walking at night.
