ObeyTrafficLaws

The Coral Springs Police strictly enforce traffic laws within the city. We remind all motorists to adhere to traffic laws, especially in and around school zones. Our Traffic Unit would like to provide a list of the most common traffic/pedestrian infractions they experience in school zones.

With the start of the school year the Coral Springs Police Department will begin an informational campaign concerning the dangers of distracted driving.  Officers within the department will be distributing information flyers and palm cards informing our citizens of the current and future changes to the Florida State Statute relating to Distracted Driving.

IMPORTANT TIPS:

  • Hands-free means put your cell phone down. Have both hands on the steering wheel. If you require your cell phone to be visible, utilize a hands-free device.
  • Remember, your text can wait, this is for your safety and that of other motorists and pedestrians.
  • Children deserve our full attention. Any form of distracted driving is unsafe, but in a school zone where children cross the street or exit a bus, this is especially dangerous.
  • Construction zones often result in lane closures, slower traffic or sudden stops and require a driver’s full attention. The new hands-free law will protect workers and motorists in these zones.
