Bicycle Safety

The Adventures in Biking Safely – March is Florida Bicycle Month!

FDOT D2 CTST FL Traffic Bike SafetyFlorida’s weather in March is perfect for biking, so get out and ride. With many drivers and cyclists on the road this month, let’s gear up with some bicycle safety reminders.

Drivers: Share the road with bicyclists and always pass or follow cyclists with at least a 3 foot barrier.

Bicyclists: Wear a helmet, ride on the right and make sure drivers can see you with bright clothing and reflectors or lights on your bike.

Have a Safe Holiday Season – Be Responsible and Do Not Drink and Drive

Thanksgiving through the New Year is a fun and festive time of year. Throughout this fall and winter season there are many celebrations, family gatherings, festivals, football pre-game tailgating and holiday parties. They are all best enjoyed when we celebrate responsibly. Please always drive safe and sober.

Recipes for the Road was started to help reduce drinking and driving, offering a great collection of non-alchoholic drink recipes. Please feel free to share and enjoy all these mocktails, food recipes, safety activity games and traffic safety tips.

It’s a team effort to produce Recipes for the Road every year. We couldn’t do it without our wonderful sponsors, partners and volunteers! This year extra special thanks go out to AAA The Auto Club Group Jacksonville + PonteVedra, Landstar and Northeast Florida Safety Council. Your passion to keep our roads safe are truly appreciated.
