Pedestrian Hybrid Beacon Signal

WHEN: Monday, October 26th, 2020, from 7 AM - 3 PM

WHERE: Park Boulevard between 49th and 66th St

WHO: Pinellas Park Police Department Traffic Enforcement Team in conjunction
with the Florida Department of Transportation Safety Programs

WHAT: On Monday, October 26th, 2020, members of the Pinellas Park Police Department and Florida Department of Transportation Safety Programs will be focusing on traffic enforcement and education efforts along Park Blvd. With the recent installation of the pedestrian hybrid beacons signals along Park Blvd at three separate locations, pedestrians can safely cross mid-block between 49th St and 66th St. Officers will be stopping and educating both vehicle and pedestrian traffic, violating the pedestrian hybrid beacon signals.

In partnership with our agency, members of the Bike Walk Tampa Bay, in conjunction with the FDOT District 7 Office Safety Programs, will be on scene to provide educational information to pedestrian traffic in the area. Our agency is grateful for the partnership and assistance from these agencies to increase safety along the roadways of Pinellas Park. With October designated as the first-ever national Pedestrian Safety month, our agency goal is to help drive down crashes involving pedestrians along Park Blvd.


Photographs of the pedestrian hybrid beacon signals will be posted to our agency social media account, along with educational material on Monday morning. A single photograph of the pedestrian hybrid beacon signal is attached to this release.
