Traffic enforcement areas for Wednesday announced

By Staff | Sep 29, 2009

On Wednesday, Sept. 30, 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. Imperial Parkway, Bonita Springs
3. River Ranch Road, Estero
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 Monday are as follows:
Citations Issued: 78
Written Warnings Issued: 93
Citizens can help by letting deputies 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 a deputy call (239) 477-1000. If you see a reckless or drunk driver while 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: Red light running is one of the leading causes of traffic accidents. As you approach an intersection controlled by a traffic signal, remember to approach cautiously and be prepared to stop. Racing to beat the light places you and other motorists at serious risk.
