LCSO traffic enforcement update for Monday

April 15, 2011
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, April 18:

1. Plantation Road, Fort Myers

2. Pine Island Road (State Road 78), Cape Coral

3. Rosemary Drive, Bonita Springs

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: 60

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: Traffic Safety Tip of the Week: Sunday marks the beginning of Train Safety Awareness Week in Florida. To promote motor vehicle and pedestrian safety at highway-rail grade crossings and on railroad property, the Sheriff's Office Traffic Unit will place electronic billboards near railroad crossings in Lee County. Florida ranks fifth in the nation with 12 fatalities at highway-rail grade crossings. Be safe and remember trains always have the right-of-way!
