University of South Florida
Sarasota-Manatee Selby Auditorium
8350 N. Tamiami Trail
Sarasota, Florida 34243
The purpose of the workshop is to discuss the benefits of senior zones. Senior zones raise a driver’s awareness that they are entering an area where they need to exercise additional caution. The zone slows traffic and increases safety for all drivers and pedestrians around retirement and assisted living communities through the use of traffic calming devices and signage. Two additional workshops are planned in March 2014 for Broward and Sarasota counties.
