Lakeland is a vibrant community conveniently located along I-4 between Tampa and Orlando. With a population just over 100,000, the city limits cover 74.4 square miles. Lakeland has many lakes that are community focal points, providing scenic areas for recreation. In fact, much of Lakeland’s culture and iconic neighborhoods are built around the 38 named lakes found in the community.
According to the AAA Foundation, 28% of crash deaths that occur at signalized intersections are the result of a driver running through a red light. The City of Lakeland, with the Police and Public Works Departments and through its Traffic Operations and Parking Services (TOPS) Division, is committed to preventing crashes and saving lives, and is moving closer to a Vision Zero approach by addressing this problem head on.
