ORANGE CITY, Fla. — Orange City Police have joined the Florida Department of Transportation High Visibility Enforcement Program, the department said Thursday.
This initiative teaches drivers, bicyclists and pedestrians Florida laws as a way to help improve safety on roads.
Police will look for drivers who speed, use mobile devices while driving and fail to stop for pedestrians in crosswalks.
Orange City said Volusia County is one of the top 25 counties in Florida for traffic crashes that cause serious injuries to cyclists and pedestrians.
“Whether you are on foot, behind the wheel or on a bike, you have a responsibility to share the road safely,” said Police Chief Wayne Miller. “Understanding the rules of the road helps ensure we all arrive at our destination safely and makes our streets safer for everyone.”
