Special note from Windermere Police Chief Dave Ogden
Operation “Best Foot Forward” will commence thisweek in the Town of Windermere. Our officers will be cracking down on motorists who won’t yield to pedestrians in our crosswalks. Feel free to share this information as a community awareness and education campaign to help make our pedestrians safer.
Studies show that periodic enforcement, along with sustained education and proper engineering can reduce pedestrian injuries and/or fatalities. We hope to get that message out this week with our team. Please drive safe and understand that it is Florida law to stop for pedestrians who are already in the walkways.
