High Visibility Enforcement to Improve Pedestrian & Bicycle Safety
In an effort to protect the safety of these most vulnerable road users, the West Palm Beach Police Department will conduct High Visibility Enforcement Details (HVE) during the period of December 2, 2019, and May 15, 2020.
November 23, 2019, (West Palm Beach, FL)  Palm Beach County ranks in the top 25 counties in the 
state for traffic crashes resulting in serious and fatal injuries to pedestrians and bicyclists.

In an effort to protect the safety of these most vulnerable road users, the West Palm Beach Police 
Department will conduct High Visibility Enforcement Details (HVE) during the period of December 2, 
2019, and May 15, 2020, in West Palm Beach, along: Broadway (36th  St.- 59th  St) / Okeechobee 
Blvd., Palm Beach Lakes Blvd., and Banyan Blvd (Dixie Hwy – Tamarind Ave).
This area is over-represented in traffic crashes resulting in serious and fatal injuries to 
pedestrians and bicyclists.

HVE details are funded through a contract with the University of North Florida in partnership with 
the Florida Department of Transportation’s focused initiative to improve pedestrian and bicycle 
safety, which compliments our Vision Zero campaign focusing on raising jaywalking awareness; safe 
roads outreach to bicyclists, and numerous school safety events.

The goal of this enforcement effort is to increase awareness of and compliance with traffic laws 
that protect the safety of pedestrians and bicyclists. Enforcement efforts will focus primarily on 
education to drivers, pedestrians, and bicyclists. However, violations may result in warnings or 
citations depending on the circumstances.

Remember:

•    Drivers should always obey speed limits, never drive impaired, and always watch for 
pedestrians and bicyclists.
•    Bicyclists should always obey traffic laws, ride in the direction of traffic, and use lights 
when riding at night.
•    Pedestrians should always, cross in crosswalks or at intersections, obey pedestrian signals, 
and make sure you are visible to drivers when walking at night.
