Well, we have a long list of things that we’re doing, an executive summary. It’s about two pages of things that we have underway. We started our campaign shortly after the beginning of 2012, after the 2011 report came out, and we started by really completely redefining and reestablishing our bicycle and pedestrian program.
Each of our seven geographic districts had someone who had as a part-time duty bike and ped responsibilities, which was not providing adequate emphasis, so one of the first things I did was to work with the districts to set up a dedicated bike-ped coordinator. That person deals with planning through design for pedestrian facilities and works with local governments on pedestrian plans. And then another position in the operations side, which is a bike-ped safety program specialist, they’re dealing with our existing safety corridor problems, basically going out and identifying what the corridors are and how we can address the safety problem for pedestrians and bicyclists. Both of those are full-time dedicated positions in each of the districts.
Likewise, I did the same thing in the central office. We also had a National Highway Transportation Safety Administration audit of our entire program. We had experts come in from all over the country with expertise and background in safety and accommodation for pedestrians and bicyclists to help us with assessing where our problems were, and they came up with a list of recommendations, and we used that to develop our first Strategic Bike/Ped Safety Plan, and that’s what we’re operating from.
Our campaign is called Alert Today, Alive Tomorrow, and if you go to our website, which is http://www.alerttodayflorida.com, there’s a complete listing of all the things that we’ve done. In terms of media, we’ve had obviously a lot of media campaigns that we’re also working to implement high-visibility enforcement in our worst corridors. We’ve just finished putting all of our 2012 safety data into a GIS database. We still don’t have all of the 2013 data yet, and so we’re working from 2012 data, and we’ve identified our worst corridors in the state.
Each of the districts is coming up with a plan on how to address the locations because each location has specific issues that are unique to that corridor. It could be lighting. It could be a lack of adequate crosswalks. I mean there are a number of things that could be the cause for that particular corridor. So, all of our districts are working on developing those plans.
