November 27, 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 Thursday, Nov. 28:

- Sunshine Boulevard, Lehigh Acres

- Corkscrew Road, Estero

- Orange River Road, 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: 57

Written Warnings Issued: 190

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: The days leading up to Thanksgiving Day are filled with motorists headed out to grab groceries and supplies. Friends and families will then take to Lee County roads to enjoy the dinners and other festivities. Don't let this busy time cause you to become lax in your attention to driving and traffic safety. And, as always, remember to "buckle up"; seat belts save lives!
