Heads Up Boca!

Heads Up Boca

With new residents and hotels in the Downtown, Boca Raton is becoming an even more vibrant and active city. That means pedestrians and motorists need to respect the rules of the road, especially in our Downtown area. When walking in urban areas, crossing busy streets and negotiating traffic, it’s important to keep your “heads up” and pay attention to what is going on around you.

As a motorist, do you know the rules of the road when making a right turn on red? As a pedestrian, do you know how to properly approach a crosswalk? The City of Boca Raton created a video explaining the rules of the road and how to stay safe while walking or driving Downtown. The video focuses on the following safety issues:

  • Proper crosswalk safety rules
  • How to identify crosswalks
  • When and where to stop for pedestrians
  • The proper rules on how to make a right turn on red

And remember, keep those phones down and heads up! Help the City of Boca Raton create a safe and walkable Downtown for everyone.
