By Staff | May 6, 2009

On Thursday, May 7, the Lee County Traffic Unit will target at least one of the following three locations for enforcement:
1. Moody Road, North Fort Myers
2. Hickory Boulevard, Bonita Springs
3. North River Road (State Road 78), Alva
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, officials said. Preliminary results from Tuesday’s enforcement activity are as follows:
Citations Issued: 110
Written Warnings Issued: 134

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 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: May is Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month. Remember the motorcycle is a vehicle with all of the rights and privileges of any other motor vehicle on the roadway. Always allow a motorcyclist the full lane width – – never try to share a lane.
