February 10, 2014
Fort Myers Beach Bulletin, Fort Myers Beach Observer

The Lee County Sheriff's Office Traffic Unit is providing the information listed below in continuing efforts to increase traffic safety awareness and education, plus to emphasize the importance of obeying traffic laws to reduce traffic crashes, injuries and death on Lee County roads.

On Tuesday, February 11, 2014, the Traffic Unit will target at least one of the following three locations for enforcement:

Estero Boulevard, Fort Myers Beach

Plantation Road, Fort Myers

Dean Street, Bonita Springs

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: 68

Written Warnings Issued: 237

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: Bus stop safety begins with you. Remember, when "stop arms" on the bus are extended and flashing red lights are displayed both directions of traffic must stop on two-lane roadways. This also applies to multi-lane roadways when a physical divider is not in place such as a grass divider or concrete median.
