SAFETY MESSAGE

March is Florida Bicycle Month

Did you know that 60% of Florida’s population lives within one mile of bicycle facilities? Everyone has the expectation, and right, to arrive at their destination safely no matter what mode of transportation they use.

  • When driving, stay alert and watch for pedestrians and bicyclists especially at night.
  • When riding at night, always use a headlight, taillight, and reflectors. Wearing light-colored or reflective clothing can also make you more visible during dark or dusk hours.
