JSO Focuses on Increasing Roadway Safety during Florida Bicycle Month
March 17, 2023
Public Education Campaign with FDOT Continues

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has declared March as Florida Bicycle Month encouraging the use of bicycles and the importance of roadway safety.

Whether it is for recreation or a mode of transportation, the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office is committed to working with the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) to help reduce traffic crashes in Duval County.

JSO is actively engaged in traffic deployments focused on increasing bicyclist and pedestrian safety as part of a contract from the University of North Florida in partnership with the Florida Department of Transportation. The deployments, now in its seventh week, will go through mid-May in high traffic areas throughout Duval County.
  • Bicyclists are considered vehicles, so those using this mode of transportation should know and obey traffic laws.
  • Bicyclists operated between sunset and sunrise must be equipped with front and rear lights.
  • Pedestrians and cyclists should wear reflective clothing at night so that they are visible to drivers.
  • As always, be alert and share the road safely.
