Sheriff's Office traffic enforcement update for Friday

February 28, 2013
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, March 1:

1. Ben C. Pratt Six-Mile Cypress Parkway, Fort Myers

2. Hickory Boulevard, Bonita Springs

3. Ben Hill Griffin Parkway, Fort Myers / Estero

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: 94

Written Warnings Issued: 268

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: Traffic volumes are at their highest this time of year with the varied planned events including spring training baseball, the Southwest Florida Fair and more. Be prepared for the congestion and potential delays by staying aware of when and where these activities will take place. If you plan ahead -- use alternate routes or allow extra time to get to your destination -- you'll avoid frustration and make your driving experience a better one.
