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.

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.

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: Throughout the year, but especially this month, a variety of entertainment, sporting and recreational events require additional law enforcement officers to direct traffic in and out of venues. Motorists need to pay close attention to the officers hand signals. Their focus is on everyone's safety and the smooth, expeditious flow of traffic. Please be patient and, most importantly, obedient to prevent a needless accident.
