LCSO traffic enforcement update for Friday

October 18, 2012
Cape Coral Daily Breeze

The Lee County Sheriff's Office Traffic Unit will target at least one of the following three locations for enforcement Friday, Oct. 19,:

1. Pine Ridge Road, Fort Myers

2. North Cleveland Avenue (U.S. 41), North Fort Myers

3. Alico Road @ Ben Hill Griffin Parkway, Fort Myers

Locations are selected based upon high incidents of crashes, traffic surveys and citizen complaints. The Sheriff's Office is committed to promoting traffic safety and enforcing the law. By focusing on violations such as red light running, speeding, DUI and others, motorists become more alert and are encouraged to obey traffic laws. The Sheriff's Office Traffic Unit and District Patrol Deputies enforce our traffic laws each day by issuing citations and warnings. Preliminary results from their cumulative activity yesterday are as follows:

Citations Issued: 48

Written Warnings Issued: 205

Citizens can help by letting us know if they observe problem areas, aggressive or impaired drivers and by their compliance with the rules of the road. To get in touch with one of our traffic deputies call (239) 477-1000. If you see a reckless or drunk driver while you are traveling in your motor vehicle in Lee County, dial 9-1-1.

This traffic enforcement advisory is available each day on the Sheriff's Office website at

Everyone is reminded to "Fasten Your Seat Belts, be courteous to drivers and pedestrians and together we can reduce traffic related fatalities, injuries and property damage.

Note: Experts agree texting, underage drinking, speeding and simply not paying attention are contributors to teen driving crashes and fatalities. National Teen Driving Safety Week ends tomorrow, but the Sheriff's Office is working all year to teach teens about driving safety. Local parents are encouraged to have their licensed young drivers attend our Teen Driver Challenge.
