Pedestrian Safety

Pedestrian Safety is a Key Focus

No Regrets When You STOP FOR PEDESTRIANS

“If only I’d been watching for pedestrians.” No Regrets When You DRIVE WITH CARE – Pedestrian Safety message targeted towards drivers.

Pedestrians are a vulnerable road user. Wether walking for enjoyment, exercise or engaged in work on the roadway, they need to be safe. Our goal is to increase driver awareness and education of pedestrian traffic safety. This tip card reminds motorists to:
Stop for pedestrians crossing at every intersection.
• Stop before tuning right on red. 
• Look in all directions before making a turn. 
• Do not pass a vehicle that is stopping for pedestrians.
• Obey the traffic laws, signals and speed limits.

No Regrets When You CROSS WITH CARE – Pedestrian Safety message targeted towards walkers.

Traffic control boxes in high traffic and high pedestrian crash locations in Jacksonville are being wrapped as a positive reminder along our streets as a reminder for everyone to pay attention and follow the rules of the road.

Double-sided pedestrian safety bookmarks were distributed to libraries throughout our 18 counties in Northeast Florida with pedestrian safety tips for drivers and pedestrians.

Pedestrian Safety Bookmark

Drivers are a primary target of our pedestrian safety messages. The bookmarks remind driver to “Watch for WALKERS!” They also include traffic safety tips and laws:
• STOP for pedestrians in the crosswalk or crossing at an intersection.
• Come to a COMPLETE STOP before turning right on red.
• LOOK in all directions before making a turn.

We also include some general safety tips for pedestrian of all ages, especially children to always “LOOK and LISTEN!”:
• STAY ON THE SIDEWALK.
• If no sidewalk, walk on the far left off the side of the road, facing traffic. 
• Cross the street ONLY at corners or CROSSWALKS.
• MAKE SURE DRIVERS SEE YOU.
• Never walk alone or at night.
• DEVICES DOWN, HEADS UP!
