The Cape Coral Police Department Traffic Unit is providing this notice as part of their continuing efforts to increase traffic safety awareness and education.

These daily notices (Monday-Friday) will identify possible locations that the department are conducting enforcement operations and results from the previous day's operation.

All is being done by the department to emphasize the importance of obeying traffic laws to reduce traffic crashes, injuries, and deaths on our roads here in Cape Coral.

On Friday, May 19, 2017, the Traffic Unit will conduct enforcement operations at least one of the following three locations:

  • Veterans Memorial Parkway
  • Skyline Boulevard
  • SE 17th Place

Locations are selected based upon traffic crash data and citizen complaints. The Cape Coral Police Department is committed to promoting traffic safety through education and enforcement. 

Visible enforcement, focusing on moving violations such as speeding, red light and stop sign violations, and aggressive driving, or criminal violations such as DUI and reckless driving, increases awareness,  encourages motorists to obey traffic laws, and reduces crashes. 

The Cape Coral Police Department Traffic Unit and Officers assigned to the Patrol Bureau enforce traffic laws every through the issuance of Uniform Traffic Citations (tickets) and through the use of warnings (written or verbal). The Cape Coral Police Department Traffic Unit encourages everyone to drive courteously and obey the rules of the road.
