In an effort to protect the safety of these most vulnerable road users, UPD will conduct High Visibility Enforcement (HVE) details in the University’s high traffic crosswalks. Funded through a contract in partnership with the Florida Department of Transportation's focused initiative, the goal is to increase awareness of and compliance with traffic laws that protect the safety of pedestrians, skateboarders, and bicyclists. Always be mindful and use extra care in crosswalk areas, whether on foot or in a motor vehicle.
