The popularity of the Pinellas Trail has soared since the pandemic -- and so have the complaints about some users of the trail. On Sat April 6, police from Belleair, Clearwater, Largo, St. Petersburg, Tarpon Springs, and the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office will be on the trail and at key roadway crossings to ensure motorist and trail users are complying with traffic laws.

The Pinellas Trail, which runs 45 miles from downtown St. Petersburg to Tarpon Springs, receives over two million users a year.

A Spring 2023 survey of Pinellas Trail users showed E-Bikes as a growing segment of users — and of concern among other trail users in comments about perceived safety of the trail.

E-Bikes topped the list of "don't feel safe" concerns for both walkers/joggers who said they didn’t feel safe (44% of comments) and among bike/E-Bikers (37%).
Lack of courtesy was mentioned ("share the path" etiquette) was twice as high among those who don't typically bike (16% vs 9%)

10% of the comments cited "fear/harassment" as a concern.

Forward Pinellas, Pinellas County, Friends of the Pinellas Trail, and the Center for Urban Transportation Research (CUTR) will be in downtown Dunedin and downtown St. Petersburg On April 6 distributing safety materials and safety devices.
