Safety by Design Florida

Safety by Design Florida is an effort to promote and encourage traffic safety in Florida. By working to provide a collection of engineering resources for safety transportation design, and educational material, we intend this site to be a “one-stop-shop” for all transportation safety efforts. This initiative was started by FDOT District One Secretary L.K. Nandam in order to address pedestrian safety issues in the national report “Dangerous by Design.” Our goal is to utilize all aspects of traffic safety to eliminate traffic fatalities. The content on this site is available for anyone to use and help reach “Vision Zero”, and will be growing considerably in the following months.

It's 🚌National School Bus Safety Week🚌 addressing the importance of school bus safety. *Every one of the 50 States has a law making it illegal to pass a school bus with its red lights flashing and stop-arm extended that is stopped to load or unload students. Motorists, stay alert, and STOP! when the red light + stop arm is activated. 🛑 #SafetyByDesignFL #RedLightMeansStop #NationalSchoolBusSafetyWeek #visionzerofl
