Distracted driving is one of the fastest growing traffic safety issues nationwide.We have recently partnered with the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) to participate in the Distracted Driving Enforcement Campaign.
Now through September 2020, as part of this campaign, officers will be conducting additional education and enforcement to remind drivers on the dangers of distracted driving; especially texting while driving.
As a reminder, effective January 1, 2020, motorists can be issued a citation for not using a device in a hands-free manner.
For everyone’s safety, please put the phone down and focus on driving.Our goal is to continue to ensure the safety of the motorists, pedestrians, and bicyclists who utilize our roadways.
Please continue to visit us on our website and on Facebook @JupiterPolice to learn about new and happening events within the Town of Jupiter.
