Safe Streets Series

Beginning in the Fall of 2015, HPD will be offering a series of educational workshops throughout Delray Beach to inform motorists, cyclists and pedestrians on the importance of individual responsibilities to ensure our streets are safe. Whether it’s the ongoing epidemic of texting, aggressive driving tendencies, or the lack of understanding that we must all share our roads safely and respects rules and laws, our goal is to reduce the number of injuries and deaths by providing the education that may be lacking among pedestrians, riders, and drivers.

 

Let's keep this tragic scenario from happening in Delray Beach!
