Poinciana Crosswalk Driver Yield Rates Increase Significantly After Best Foot Forward Countermeasures and Enforcement
There’s good news for people walking and crossing the street at N. Doverplum Ave. and…
When it comes to people walking, the City of Kissimmee is putting its best foot forward – literally. Through education, engineering and enforcement (the “Triple E” approach), they are working with their Osceola County partners to create safer walking conditions by getting drivers to stop for pedestrians in crosswalks with the Best Foot Forward program. Here’s a great PSA, produced by the City of Kissimmee’s Access Osceola team and the Kissimmee Police Department. The PSA introduces Best Foot Forward, Osceola County partners and the Florida driver yield law that requires drivers to yield or stop to people crossing the street in marked crosswalks.
Thank you to the City of Kissimmee and the Kissimmee Police Department for your hard work on this project and for educating drivers to keep walkers safe.
