The Florida Bicycle Association selected Florida Department of Transportation and Ms. Sarita Taylor, FDOT’s Safe Routes to School Coordinator, as their 2013 Partner of the Year for their exemplary efforts in bicycle safety. Ms. Taylor was nominated by the Florida Traffic and Bicycle Safety Education Program. The program trains physical education teachers around the state to teach bicycle safety programs to students. Ms. Taylor has provided training equipment and educational materials to assist with this program.
Bicycle and pedestrian safety is FDOT’s highest initiative, and we applaud the dedicated efforts in working with our partners to fulfill the FDOT mission to Drive Down Fatalities.
