According to a release from the Daytona Beach Police Department, the City of Daytona is ranked 3rd out of 102 cities in Florida for traffic crashes that result in severe or fatal injury.

To protect the safety of these most vulnerable road users, the Daytona Beach Police Department (DBPD) will conduct a High Visibility Enforcement (HVE) Traffic Safety Operation from October 2020 until May 2021 along the roadways that are most common for traffic crashes resulting in serious and fatal injuries to pedestrians and bicyclists.

These roads include the following:

  • - Nova Road/State Road 5A
  • - Mason Avenue/State Road 430
  • - Clyde Morris Boulevard
  • - Ridgewood Avenue/U.S. 1
  • - International Speedway Boulevard/U.S. 92
  • - Atlantic Avenue/State Road A1A

A map showing the exact areas to be covered is posted below.

The HVE details remain supported through a contract with the University of North Florida in partnership with the Florida Department of Transportation’s focused initiative to improve pedestrian and bicycle safety.

The goal of this enforcement effort is to increase awareness of and compliance with traffic laws that protect the safety of pedestrians and bicyclists.

Enforcement efforts will focus primarily on education for drivers, pedestrians, and bicyclists. It will also include the issuance of citations and warnings, depending on the circumstances.
