By Staff | Jan 30, 2009

On Monday, Feb. 2, the Lee County Sheriff’s Office Traffic Unit will target at least one of the following three locations for enforcement:
1. Leeland Heights Boulevard, Lehigh Acres
2. West Terry Street, Bonita Springs
3. Summerlin Road, Fort Myers

Locations are selected based upon high incidents of crashes, traffic surveys and citizen complaints. Preliminary results from their cumulative activity Thursday are as follows:
Citations Issued: 92
Written Warnings Issued: 146

Citizens can help officials by letting deputies know if they observe problem areas, aggressive or impaired drivers. 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 Web site 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: PATIENCE – This one word, if put into practice, can prevent a traffic crash. A driver who gets in a rush or lacks patience becomes what is known as the “aggressive driver”. The patient motorist allows extra time to reach their destination, uses their turn signals, doesn’t tailgate, speed or run red lights – an excellent example of safe driving.
