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, Feb. 8:

1. Michael G. Rippe Parkway (Metro Extension), Fort Myers

2. Hancock Bridge Parkway @ U.S. 41, North Fort Myers

3. Homestead Road, 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:53

Written Warnings Issued: 169

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: Be attentive to traffic conditions around you, especially in front. Scan ahead to look for traffic signals changing, posted warning signs and motorists slowing, stopping or swerving. In wet weather automatically slow down and allow extra distance and time to stop. Increased attentiveness helps keep you and others safer on our congested roadways.
