Sunny Sunpass Says BUCKLE UP

Traffic stop in front of billboard/signSunny Sunpass and close up of billboard/signMotorists traveling Florida’s Turnpike these days can catch a glimpse of a brand new sunny face posted on some of the signs and billboards along the roadway. Sunny Sunpass, the Turnpike’s new mascot, hopes to catch the eye of motorists, adults and kids alike, to convey an important message, “Buckle Up. It’s the law!”

Sgt. Jorge Delahoz, Troop K Public Affairs Officer serving the Turnpike, says, “Sunny Sunpass really captures the attention of motorists, especially the kids – they really love him.” Troopers appreciate the extra reinforcement the mascot provides, and hopes Sunny can help get the point across to always wear a seat belt on the Turnpike and everywhere else.
