LCSO, the Lee County Sheriff’s Office is planning a DUI checkpoint this weekend, in addition to saturation patrols targeting impaired drivers. Everybody be safe out there, get an Uber or a cab, but don’t drink and drive!
If you have any questions, be sure to speak to an experienced Defense attorney.
Always a bad idea to drink and drive, and one of the purposes of law enforcement operations is to remind people of the dangers. I hear there will be a checkpoint in or around Fort Myers tonight. Cape Coral is having a high-visibility DUI enforcement operation. And Cincincinnati friends, there is a checkpoint in Hamilton County (possibly Mariemont area).
The Fort Myers Police Department will conduct a DUI sobriety checkpoint sometime this coming weekend. The operation will take place at an undisclosed location in the City of Fort Myers as FMPD continues its commitment to getting impaired drivers off our roadways. Checkpoint emphasis is placed on the following: 1. Remove impaired drivers from the roadway 2. Reduce the likelihood impaired drivers will operate their vehicles on our roadways 3. Heighten awareness 4. Educate the public on the dangers of drunken driving Sobriety checkpoints and other increased patrol operations are scheduled as part of the Fort Myers Police Department’s strategic plan and on-going efforts to make the streets safer by educating the public on traffic safety issues. FMPD received funding from the Florida Department of Transportation to host DUI checkpoints. The money helps purchase DUI checkpoint equipment and to pay officers overtime when they participate in the checkpoints.
