Pinellas County Sheriff's Office Deploys Signs With Bike Safety Message In Response To SWFBUD Request

As posted here earlier, SWFBUD has contacted police and local governments in Tampa Bay to ask them to deploy their portable message signs along roadways to display "Share the Road With Bicycles" messages.

SWFBUD believes public education is an essential tool to enhance bicyclist safety on the roads.

This morning, I got good news from the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office -- they are deploying three message signs with the Share the Road message at three locations.

The email:


My name is lieutenant Adrian Arnold of the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office.

Just wanted to let you know our agency deployed 3 portable message board signs talking about “Share the Roads with Bicycles.”

Thank You,
Lieutenant Adrian B. Arnold
Pinellas County Sheriff's Office
Patrol Operations Bureau
Central District Station"

Pinellas County Sheriff's Office joins Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office, Tampa Police and Temple Terrace Police in deploying portable signs to display bike safety messages.
