It was a real treat for Best Foot Forward (BFF) to share pedestrian safety materials…
It was an amazing day. Thanks to the BFF partners, Tuesday, Feb. 18th will go down in history as the largest, saturated crosswalk enforcement operation since Best Foot Forward launched in 2012. It’s probably the largest crosswalk operation ever conducted in the state of Florida.
A big THANK YOU to Best Foot Forward enforcement partners who reminded drivers that Seminole is SERIOUS about safety. Kudos to the seven agencies who conducted crosswalk enforcement at 19 locations started at 7:00 am until 4:00 pm.
- Altamonte Springs Police Department
- Casselberry Police Department
- Longwood Police Department
- Oviedo Police Department
- Sanford Police Department
- Winter Springs Police Department
- Seminole County Sheriff’s Office
Enforcement Citations & Warnings
A total of 393 written warnings and citations were issued to those drivers who failed to yield, stop and remain stopped for pedestrians to cross in a crosswalk, as Florida law requires.
A few notable highlights from today:
Seminole County Commissioner Bob Dallari kicked off Altamonte Police Department’s first crosswalk enforcement operation of the day at 7:30 am, along with WFTV. Check out Commissioner Dallari interview on WDBO interview Commissioner Dallari – Altamonte And, both he and PIO Michelle Sosa were featured in Facebook Live that ran on Best Foot Forward’s Facebook Page and shared by MetroPlan Orlando and other partners. City of Oviedo Councilwoman Judith Smith joined the BFF team at the Alafaya Woods crosswalk to see first-hand what an enforcement looks like. Students from Rollins College observed BFF in action at the Sanford crosswalks and will participate in data collection early in March.
MetroPlan Orlando’s communications team, Cynthia Lambert, Mary Ann Horne, and Leilani Vaiaoga, worked their magic and captured enforcement in action at multiple crosswalk locations. Be sure you go to MetroPlan Orlando’s Twitter or Facebook pages because these three carry the big cameras, with BIG lenses and shoot incredible pictures. See all in action here – https://twitter.com/
