Traffic enforcement areas for Friday announced

By Staff | Apr 9, 2009

On Friday, April 10, the Lee County Sheriff’s Office Traffic Unit will target at least one of the following three locations for enforcement:
1. Plantation Road, Fort Myers
2. Alabama Road, Lehigh Acres
3. College Parkway & Summerlin 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 traffic laws each day by issuing citations and warnings.
Preliminary results from their cumulative activity Wednesday are as follows:
Citations Issued: 149
Written Warnings Issued: 160
Citizens can get in touch with traffic deputies by calling (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: It’s National Work Zone Awareness Week, so slow down. Speeding is one of the major causes of work zone crashes. In Florida, violators are subject to twice the cost of the applicable speeding fine.
