FLYERS & PRESENTATIONS
For this campaign the Community Traffic Safety Team (CTST) members concentrate on creating public awareness of the dangers of red light violations by incorporating public information and education with aggressive law enforcement. This campaign includes public service announcements provided by television, radio, and print media, as well as, banners, billboards, and bus benches.
There are lots of good reasons for stopping at a red light. It's the law. It's safe. It allows traffic to flow well. But if those good reasons aren't enough, here are some new ones - traffic tickets, fines, possible increases on your car insurance. Law enforcement officials are concerned about red light running, so more police officers will be writing tickets from now on. Please remember, the light is red for a reason. So Stop.

Because of these reasons, Seminole County is promoting the KidZone concept aimed at increasing child safety in our neighborhoods. KidZone is patterned after the Neighborhood Watch program. The idea behind KidZone is to educate children and parents alike on child safety programs as it relates to Traffic Safety, Fire Safety, Stranger/Danger, Bicycle Safety, 911 or Pedestrian Safety.
Neighborhoods meeting the designated criteria can achieve KidZone status by holding a meeting that is attended by at least 10 children accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. Safety personnel from Seminole County's Sheriff's Office or the Traffic Engineering Department will conduct the meeting.
Neighborhoods that hold a meeting at least once a year are entitled to have KidZone signs posted at the entrance to their communities. The signs are intended to remind drivers that child safety is important to this neighborhood and that the residents have taken steps to insure the safety of their children.
In order to maintain KidZone status, the neighborhood must renew the program on a yearly basis. Failure to do so will result in removal of the sign(s).
It is important to remember that signs do not provide any type of physical protection for children. There is no substitute for proper supervision and education. It is up to ALL of us to protect our most valuable resource: OUR CHILDREN.
The following qualifying criteria for the program:
1.) Residential street (meaning not a collector or higher classification).
2.) Closed sub-division (meaning no opportunities for cut-through by non-resident traffic).
3.) Average Daily Traffic (ADT) less than a 1000 vpd.
4.) No geometric restrictions (vertical and horizontal curvatures restricting sight)
