Pedestrian crosswalks: Everyone has a responsibility

Share this story:

Bartow Police Chief Joseph Hall

Text Size:

Bartow is the hub of county business. Because of this, we have a lot of crosswalks. Some of our crosswalks are located in areas that are not directly associated with an intersection, and at least one is mid-block. Crosswalks are established by the city government for pedestrian traffic so that they may safely navigate vehicle traffic in strategic locations.

When approaching a designated crosswalk, both the driver of a vehicle and the pedestrian have responsibilities. State Law dictates the actions of motorists and pedestrians at this location under Florida State Statute 316.130.
