Protecting Children: Orange County Public Works Installs Raised Crosswalks at Most Dangerous School Crossings
News from Orange County Government News Room: It’s a frightening sight: a car or truck…
*Video Crosswalks are El Trio Way & North Pine Hills Road, North Thacker Avenue & Apopka Vineland Road
The Orlando Police Department, Orange County Sheriff’s Office, Kissimmee Police Department, St. Cloud Police Department, and Osceola County Sheriff’s Office were out on November 7 cracking down on the crosswalks for the first ever multi-jurisdictional Operation Best Foot Forward. Officers and sheriffs enforced a total of 11 crosswalks throughout the day—and while some motorists yielded in the crosswalk, others did not—resulting in a $164-166 fine and up to three points on their license. As always, Best Foot Forward is not about giving people tickets, but about promoting safety in our communities.
