Pull Up To "The Traffic Stop"

Tired of getting stuck in Airport-Pulling Road traffic?

Sick of sitting still on Immokalee Road?

Want to learn where the tie-ups are in real time, not stale information you hear on the radio?

CCSO’s newest blog, “The Traffic Stop,” aims to get Collier commuters through the traffic and home safely all day. It’s the latest multimedia, information-sharing effort to give the community information they can use daily.

Here’s how: Sign up for real-time text messages to be sent to your phone as soon as the calls come in to CCSO. We’ll send the information and even offer up detours so you can cut down on that long ride home. Check with your cell phone carrier because text message rates apply.

Also, check the blog for daily traffic reminders about everything from driving in fog to tips about the Move Over law.

We’ll even show you some bad driving habits captured by the in-patrol car cameras. Some of them will shock you. Some of them will make you laugh. But they’re all happening on the roads you drive every day.

Let us know what you think by e-mailing us at and tell what traffic features we should add to the blog.
