BREVARD COUNTY • PALM BAY, FLORIDA – The Palm Bay Police Department continues to partner with the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) in an effort to improve the safety of the most vulnerable roads users in the community.

Florida’s Alert Today/Alive Tomorrow High Visibility Enforcement Program is designed to increase awareness of, and compliance with, traffic laws and regulations that protect the safety of pedestrians and bicyclists on Florida’s roads.

Since Palm Bay Police has partnered with FDOT regarding this safety initiative, they have seen a decrease of crashes involving bicyclists and pedestrians.

Officers will conduct details in corridors of Palm Bay Road, Babcock Street and Malabar Road which are major roadways identified by FDOT as in having the highest number of crashes involving pedestrians and bicyclists in Palm Bay.

The main focus of the officers working these details is education and not on the issuance of citations, though citations will be issued if warranted.

The Palm Bay Police Department is asking the public to do their part in keeping the roadways safe by being alert and driving carefully.
