Bike and Pedestrian Safety
The City of Key West is partnering with the Florida Department of Transportation and the University of North Florida to reduce the number of bicycle and pedestrian injuries and deaths, with a contract for overtime enforcement funding.
Officers working the High Visibility Enforcement details are dedicated to changing dangerous behavior of drivers, bicyclists and pedestrians at specific times and locations. The focus will be on violations that involve biking and pedestrians in the streets and sidewalks. Each contact, whether or not a citation is issued, is intended to educate the public on avoidable hazards that present themselves when autos, bikes and pedestrians all share the same paths.
