Pursuant to Title XXIII – Motor Vehicles, Chapter 316 – State Uniform Traffic Control, Section 316.088 – One-way Roadways and Rotary Traffic Islands, the Department of Transportation and local authorities, have the authority to designate any highway, roadway, part of a roadway, or specific lanes of traffic to proceed in one direction at such times, so long as such indication is indicated by official traffic control devices. When a roadway, part of a roadway, highway, etc. has been designated for one-way traffic, any vehicles on such roadway must be driven only in the designated direction. Any vehicles passing a rotary traffic island must be driven only to the right of such island.
A violation of the provisions of this statute is considered a noncriminal traffic violation, punishable as a moving violation.
Good driving consists of practice and being alert while behind the wheel. Florida drivers need to ensure nothing interferes with their ability to see the road, react to situations or operate their vehicle properly. Florida drivers must stay alert as to what is going on around them and never take their eyes off the road.
