Concerned about traffic safety? City of West Palm Beach received a $40,000 grant from the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT). The grant was awarded to the West Palm Beach Police Department for pedestrian and bicycle enforcement. So keep your eyes open while crossing those streets (or driving a car/bicycle)!
This money is going to support the City of West Palm Beach’s Vision Zero initiative. For more about Vision Zero visit: wpb.org/visionzero
