May is ‘Share the Road’ safety campaign month in Florida.
Walkers, riders, and drivers are encouraged to share the road safely as part of the initiative launched by the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (FLHSMV), the Florida Highway Patrol (FHP), safety campaign partners the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT), Florida Police Chiefs Association (FPCA), Florida Sheriffs Association (FSA), The Florida Trucking Association (FTA), and AAA Florida.
“Whether we’re walking, running, cycling, or driving, our roads are a common ground that connects us all,” said FPCA President and Fellsmere Police Department Chief Keith Touchberry.
“Each day we leave our homes, we play a crucial role in protecting the lives of our fellow community members by being attentive and respectful to one another on the road. The Florida Police Chiefs Association joins the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles to remind us that safety is a shared responsibility, and together, we can make our roads safer for everyone.”
Comprehensive data breakdown of crashes involving motorcycles, pedestrians, bicycles, and commercial motor vehicles, is available on the FLHSMV’s data dashboard.
