Fort Lauderdale Beach Pedestrians

Fort Lauderdale beach is a place where drivers seem to ignore the strict speed limits and pedestrians suffer the consequences. If right turns on red were to be eliminated during the day, it might create a safer environment for pedestrians. Right now, most drivers fail to slow or stop when a pedestrian is in the crosswalk because making a right turn on red is legal.

In order to promote the safety of pedestrians who visit the beach, the state has installed new florescent yellow signs with downward arrows. These have been placed on every crosswalk along the entire stretch of the beach, and the state has also taken action to remind drivers that it is the law to stop for pedestrians. By installing new signs at both ends of the beach, the state is hoping to make a positive effort towards improving pedestrian safety. Call a Ft.
