BREVARD COUNTY • PALM BAY, FLORIDA – The Palm Bay Police Department’s new Traffic Unit started Tuesday morning and is already busy with red-light runners.

The Palm Bay Police Department partnered with 12 other law enforcement agencies across Central Florida and Brevard County on a mission to save lives with the launch of Operation Vision Zero earlier this year.

In each Vision Zero Zone, special attention will be directed towards drivers who speed, fail to yield and stop for pedestrians in crosswalks, and those passing bicyclists too closely.

Officers will also be on the lookout for pedestrians crossing the street outside of a crosswalk or failing to wait for the walk signal before crossing, and for bicyclists who do not obey traffic signs and signals, ride against traffic, or ride at night without lights and reflectors.

“Operation Vision Zero is a high visibility enforcement campaign that brings law enforcement agencies across four counties together in this fight toward zero traffic crashes resulting in serious or fatal injuries to pedestrians and bicyclists on our roads,” said Amanda Day, Communications Lead for Alert Today Florida.

“Working together isn’t just critical, it’s a necessity to save lives.

Please drive safely and take care of your fellow citizens on the roadways.
