Pay Attention While Stuck in Traffic

The Town of Palm Beach provides many distractions to drivers while passing through Palm Beach.  Stunning architecture, beautiful landscapes and gorgeous beaches are just a few examples of ways drivers can be distracted.  Let’s not make your cellphone one of them. 

Presidential visits, residents, employees and visitors from all over the world add to the traffic congestion in Palm Beach. During high traffic times, it is necessary for drivers to be aware of their surroundings more than ever.  Keep your attention on the road and be aware of the traffic around you. When possible, we will have officers directing traffic to assist in getting traffic on and off the Island.  You can help us by being attentive and moving your vehicle as soon as the light turns green, the vehicles in front of you start moving or an officer gives you the signal to go ahead.  

It is never safe to use an electronic device and drive, but distracted driving delays us in getting traffic flowing.  We have experienced large gaps between vehicles primarily because the motorist was not paying attention.  We want everyone to get to their destination as quickly and safely as possible.  Help us by paying attention to the traffic in front of you and moving as soon as possible.  Keep a safe distance between cars and be prepared for sudden stops.
