Beach Beacon
No pedestrian tickets in North Redington

NORTH REDINGTON BEACH – As it turns out, pedestrians won’t have to worry about getting ticketed for crossing Gulf Boulevard at areas other than crosswalks.

North Redington Beach Mayor Bill Queen said last week that Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office deputies would continue to issue citations only in cases of violations involving Florida Statute 316.130, which defines an illegal crossing, or jaywalking, as an individual crossing diagonally or forcing cars to stop in the roadway.

The policy of North Redington Beach and the sheriff’s office, Queen said, would be to continue to issue warnings only.

“A deputy in our meeting gave us some information that was not correct,” said Queen. “He said pedestrians can only cross at crosswalks. You can cross anywhere you want as long as you don’t go on a diagonal pattern or force cars to stop.”

A story in the May 15 edition of the Beach Beacon reported that Queen said pedestrian violations would result in a $62 fine.

Queen said May 16 that the policy of North Redington Beach and other beach communities is to educate the public on safety and only warnings are being issued.

An exception to the rule is St. Pete Beach where three $62 citations have been issued, Queen said.

Queen said in those cases, the pedestrians were belligerent to deputies and that’s why they were given citations.
