Pinellas County Sheriff’s deputies are encouraging bicyclists to ride safe during the month of March, designated by Gov. Rick Scott as Florida Bicycle Month. According to the Florida Department of Transportation, nearly 25 million residents and tourists participate in bicycling throughout the year. Deputies will be conducting on-the-street high visibility education and enforcement to help bring awareness to bicycle safety. Deputies will be distributing educational materials, as well as issuing warnings or citations in accordance with Florida Statutes. The purpose of the initiative is to help drive down the number of bicycle and pedestrian fatalities, injuries and crashes in the county.
