Authorities will focus on everyone’s safety for this years spring break festivities
Spring break is now upon the city of Fort Lauderdale, and will continue until April 1. With upwards of 10,000 people expected to be visiting our city, officers and public officials have stated that safety will be this years top priority.
Due to covid in the past years, spring break was much more milder than what is expected on the beaches this year. With the world being open again, many more young people are expected to come and have the spring break of a lifetime.
Police are encouraging all people who are new to visiting Fort Lauderdale, to read up on our local laws and ordinances, so they can know what will be tolerated and what will not be.
First and foremost will be alcohol enforcement. Police remind everyone that alcohol possession or consumption by anyone under the age of 21 is strictly prohibited and will be heavily enforced to ensure everyone’s safety during the event.
Police also want to remind everyone that there are no pitching of sleeping tents, open fires, picnic tables, or loud amplified music.
Life guards will be on duty for the entire break, and police are reminding everyone they are there for your safety, and please listen to them if there are public safety issues, such as rip currents etc.
Police also encourage the public to utilize the many ride sharing applications from Uber, to Lyft – and remind people visiting our city that drinking and driving will not be tolerated in any form.
