The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT), through a Task Work Order with the University of South Florida, has partnered with law enforcement agencies for support to enhance a comprehensive safety campaign that promotes safe pedestrian, bicyclist and driver behaviors in high priority counties throughout the state. These agencies will conduct high visibility enforcement (HVE) campaigns in conjunction with other education efforts to keep pedestrians and bicyclists safe on Florida’s roadways.
The City of Orlando Police Department has been awarded $49,248.00 from the University of South Florida to conduct these high visibility law enforcement campaigns. The funds are limited to overtime and other allowable expenses as required in the Letter of Agreement and Contract, specific to improving pedestrian and bicycle safety in the City of Orlando.
The Agreement will be with the University of South Florida Board of Trustees for the University of South Florida’s Center for Urban Transportation Research. Expenditures will be reimbursed by the University of South Florida under the terms and conditions of FDOT project. The agreement will run until May 2017.
