LCSO traffic enforcement update for Monday

By Staff | Jun 5, 2015

The Lee County Sheriff’s Office Traffic Unit will target at least one of the following three locations for enforcement Monday, June 8:

– Luckett Road, Fort Myers

– Tice Street, Fort Myers

– Veronica Shoemaker Boulevard, 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 yesterday are as follows:

– Citations Issued: 42

– Written Warnings Issued: 115

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: This weekend, the Lee County Sheriff’s Office Traffic Unit will conduct D.U.I. “saturation” patrols in undisclosed locations of Lee County. These patrols are an enhancement to the daily commitment of our deputies to remove impaired drivers from our roadways with the ultimate goal of reducing traffic related crashes, injuries and fatalities. Saturation patrols are one of many education and enforcement initiatives scheduled throughout the year to combat drunk driving.
