By Staff | Dec 6, 2011

The Lee County Sheriff’s Office Traffic Unit will target at least one of the following

three locations for enforcement Wednesday:

* Daniels Parkway, Fort Myers

* Milwaukee Boulevard, Lehigh Acres

*. Palm Beach Boulevard (State Road 80), 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, officials said.

The Sheriff’s Office Traffic Unit and District Patrol Deputies issued the following citations and warnings Monday:

Citations Issued: 22

Written Warnings: 100

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, officials said. 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.

This weekend, the Lee County Sheriff’s Office Traffic Unit, will conduct D.U.I. “saturation” patrols in undisclosed locations of Lee County. These roving patrols are an enhancement to the daily commitment of our deputies to remove impaired drivers from our roadways with the ultimate goal of reducing crashes, injuries and fatalities, Lee County Sheriff’s Office officials said.
