By Staff | Jun 4, 2009

On Friday, June 5, the Lee County Sheriff’s Office Traffic Unit will target at least one of the following three locations for enforcement:
1. Bonita Beach Road, Bonita Springs
2. San Carlos Boulevard, Fort Myers Beach
3. Cemetery 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 our traffic laws each day by issuing citations and warnings.
Preliminary results from their cumulative activity Wednesday are as follows:
Citations Issued: 93
Written Warnings Issued: 132
To get in touch with a traffic deputy 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: Occasionally accidents occur when courteous driver’s allow another motorist to turn in front or cut across multiple lanes. If you’re the benefactor, please keep in mind it’s still your responsibility to look for oncoming traffic that have the right-of-way.
