Pedestrian and Bicycle Safety Enforcement Campaign

The Jupiter Police Department, in partnership with the Florida Department of Transportation and the University of South Florida Center for Urban Transportation Research, is participating in a Pedestrian and Bicycle Safety

Enforcement campaign to promote increased safety and awareness among motorists, pedestrians and bicyclists. 

Beginning this month, as part of the Pedestrian and Bicycle Safety Enforcement campaign, Jupiter Police Department Officers will be conducting on-street high visibility enforcement operations throughout the Town of Jupiter.  In an effort to educate and remind residents and visitors on the safe behaviors to be followed, officers will be providing traffic safety educational materials to pedestrians, bicyclists, and motorists during this important campaign.  

The Jupiter Police Department is committed to decreasing the number of injuries and fatalities of pedestrians and bicyclists through increased education, awareness and enforcement.  By following these important safety tips, we can ensure the safety of all roadway users:

  Pedestrians should always walk on the sidewalk and if no sidewalk, walk facing traffic.
  Pedestrians and bicyclists should not wear headphones or talk on their cell phones. 
  Pedestrians and bicyclists should cross streets at marked crosswalks or intersections when possible and obey traffic signals.
  Walking or biking while impaired increases your chances of being struck.  STAY SOBER.
  Bicyclists operating on the roadway are subject to obeying all traffic control devices to include stop signs and lighted traffic signals.
  Drivers should always be cognizant of pedestrians and bicyclists utilizing sidewalks, crosswalks and roadways.
