Daily traffic enforcement update for Tuesday

October 29, 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 Tuesday, Oct. 30:

1. College Parkway, Fort Myers

2. Lee Boulevard, Lehigh Acres

3. Orange River Boulevard, 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: 62

Written Warnings Issued: 178

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: As a safety reminder though, vehicles must stop when a school bus displays a stop arm and flashers. Both directions of traffic must stop on two-lane roadways. This also applies on multi-lane roadways when a physical divider is not in place such as grass or concrete medians. Where such dividers exist, traffic proceeding in the same direction as the stopped bus must stop, while traffic flow in the opposite direction can continue. Don't hesitate to call our Traffic Unit at 477-1000 if you have a question about rules of the road.
