SWFBUD Thanks Hillsborough Sheriff's Office For Electronic Bicycle Safety Messages

SWFBUD thanks Troy Morgan of the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office for using bicycle safety messages as part of sheriff's office portable electronic signs on Fletcher Avenue near I-75 and also on North Dale Mabry Highway in the Northdale area.

I contacted local governments and law enforcement agencies last month about using their portable signs to get bicycle safety messages such as share the troad and pass bikes with at least 3 feet to the public.

Troy of HCSO was the FIRST to use the electronic signs to help bicyclists. Thanks Troy and HCSO!

I hope Tampa and Temple Terrace police departments and local governments do the same.

That's terrific. Believe it improves motorists' awareness and co-operation.

Not sure how much good it does (I hope it makes motorists more aware but I wonder if they care...), but it was a sight for sore eyes on my way back into Tampa after a brief vacation. =)
