Sheriff's Office traffic enforcement update for tuesday

August 12, 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 Tuesday, Aug. 13:

- Veronica Shoemaker Boulevard, Fort Myers

- East Terry Street, Bonita Springs

- Lee Road, Fort Myers (San Carlos Park)

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 Friday are as follows:

Citations Issued: 57

Written Warnings Issued: 206

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: Don't become a crash statistic. Studies show use of a cellular phone while driving, even with a hands free device, is a distraction. Your vigilance and reactions are greatly impaired and dramatically increase the likelihood you'll be in an accident. If you must use a cell phone, pull safely off the roadway or into a parking lot.
