A special thank you to the Seven Eleven on Bullard Pkwy for stopping by to drop off some power rings (aka donuts) for our officers. We appreciate the community support and your thoughtfulness is priceless to us. THANK YOU!

There are many misconceptions about where you can and can't cross the street in Florida. Below are some of the laws in Florida that pertain to this topic. Section 316.130 F.S.: -- No pedestrian shall suddenly leave a curb or other place of safety and walk or run into the path of a vehicle which is so close that it is impossible for the driver to yield. -- Every pedestrian crossing a roadway at any point other than within a marked crosswalk or within an unmarked crosswalk at an intersection shall yield the right-of-way to all vehicles upon the roadway. -- Between adjacent intersections at which traffic control signals are in operation, pedestrians shall not cross at any place except in a marked crosswalk. -- No pedestrian shall, except in a marked crosswalk, cross a roadway at any other place than by a route at right angles to the curb or by the shortest route to the opposite curb. -- Pedestrians shall move, whenever practicable, upon the right half of crosswalks. -- No pedestrian shall cross a roadway intersection diagonally unless authorized by official traffic control devices, and, when authorized to cross diagonally, pedestrians shall cross only in accordance with the official traffic control devices pertaining to such crossing movements. Little Known Facts About Pedestrian Laws: -- There is no "jaywalking" law. -- Jaywalking is not a legal term--it is not found in Florida statutes and has no legal meaning. -- Some actions that people call jaywalking - such as crossing against a red light - are illegal. But crossing mid-block, which is often referred to as "jaywalking", is legal in most locations.
