UF professor's teaching pedestrian safety to law enforcement personnel
UF professors teach pedestrian safety to law enforcement personnel.

Professors from the University of Florida recently offered training on pedestrian safety to Florida Highway Patrol troopers, and officers from the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office, Florida Department of Transportation’s Motor Carrier Compliance Office, St. Johns County Sheriff's Office, St. Augustine Beach Police Department, and Jacksonville Beach Police Department. The training focused on motorists' responsibility to yield to pedestrians who have entered an intersection legally and who are crossing at marked crosswalks. The training included classroom instruction as well as field observation and enforcement. The Florida Crash Statistics for 2004 show 7,551 pedestrians injured in collisions with motor vehicles, with 504 pedestrians killed in that year. Pedestrians are required to cross roadways legally and motorists need to yield to them.
