Sheriff's Office traffic enforcement update for Monday

October 25, 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 Monday, Oct. 28

- Corkscrew Road, Estero

- Laurel Lane, North Fort Myers

- Leeland Heights Boulevard, Lehigh Acres

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: 109

Written Warnings Issued: 235

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 www.sheriffleefl.org.

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 Safety Tip of the Week: Remember to turn off your high beam headlights as motorists approach you on roadways and as you come upon those traveling in the same direction. Florida law requires you to dim at 500 feet to oncoming traffic and 300 feet as you approach from behind.
