In an ongoing effort to protect the safety of the most vulnerable road users, beginning August 12, 2022, the Daytona Beach Police Department will be conducting High Visibility Enforcement (HVE) to improve Pedestrian and Bicycle Safety.
The department will be participating in a state-wide HVE enforcement campaign in partnership with the Florida Department of Transportation, addressing high pedestrian and bicycle crash locations around the city.
Our goal is to continue to decrease the number of these incidents by providing further awareness and education of traffic laws that protect the safety of pedestrians and bicyclists.
Enforcement efforts will consist of two phases. The first phase will focus primarily on education to drivers, pedestrians, and bicyclists and the second phase will include education and warnings or citations issued to drivers, pedestrians, and bicyclists for violations.
For the safety of everyone, please remember these safety tips:
· 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 in crosswalks or at intersections, obey pedestrian signals, and make sure you are visible to drivers when walking at night.
