atat_logo

As part of the Palm Beach Police Department’s continuing partnership with the FDOT’s Pedestrian & Bicycle Focused Initiative, the Palm Beach Police Department is promoting “Active Transportation Week.” Walking, biking and other modes of getting from place to place using human power are considered Active Transportation. Active Transportation Systems offers commuters a safe and accessible option to driving and promotes physical activity during their commute. Active Transportation can reduce traffic congestion, improve air quality, reduce stress, improve overall health, and provide accessibility to all members of the community, regardless of age, physical ability, or socioeconomic status.


“Walkable Wednesday” – Walking Safety Tips:


•Obey all traffic laws – As a road user, you should always obey the pedestrian traffic laws to be safe on the road.
•Use sidewalks or walk against the direction of traffic – If there are no sidewalks present, walk against the direction of traffic so you can see oncoming vehicles.
•Always use the crosswalk. The marked crosswalk at signalized intersections is the safest place to cross.
•Look then, look again. Look left, right and then look left again before crossing.
•Be visible. Wear bright colors and reflective accessories such as belts, clothes, wristbands and shoes.

During this initiative, Palm Beach Police Officers will be out educating the public by increasing awareness and compliance of traffic laws that protect the safety of pedestrians and bicyclists.
