Operation Best Foot Forward
Law enforcement agencies in Orange County, led by Orlando Police Department (OPD) and the Orange County Sheriff’s Office (OCSO), and agencies in Osceola County, led by the Osceola County Sheriff’s Office, the Kissimmee Police Department (KPD) and the St. Cloud Police Department (SCPD), are committed to improving pedestrian safety using a system of escalating consequences, starting with general driver awareness and progressing from warning fliers to moving violations.
As part of the Best Foot Forward program, officers set up enforcement operations throughout the region and stop drivers who fail to yield to pedestrians in marked crosswalks as the law requires. Enforcement in Osceola County will start in 2018.
Best Foot Forward employs the NHTSA approach to enforcing the driver yield laws. NHTSA: High Visibility Enforcement on Driver Compliance with Pedestrian Right-of-Way Laws
