The City of Daytona Beach ranks 3rd out of 102 cities in Florida (population of 15,000 - 74,999) for traffic crashes resulting in serious and fatal injuries to pedestrians and bicyclists. 

In an effort 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 (also displayed on the map):

  • 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

The HVE details are funded 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.
