Move Over Enforcement Assists DOT in Cleanup

From the Florida Department of Transportation:

“DOT personnel were able to do a litter pick-up of nearly 9.5 miles of roadway, swales, and shoulders, inspect 1.75 miles of Guardrail, clean approximately 33 storm drains, sweep 3.5 miles of bicycle lane and shoulder, and cut one-half mile of trees and vegetation back from a guardrail and roadway over the course of the 4-day operation.  DOT personnel were out there every day doing this type of work but having law enforcement alongside us to help educate the public about moving over for Public Works and Utility vehicles, made doing this work a little easier and safer.”

Results of the 4 day Move Over Enforcement is as follows:  

Traffic Stops – 403
Misdemeanor Citations – 9
