Stay Safe Memorial Day Weekend

Whether out on the roadway or open waters, the Collier County Sheriff’s Office wants to make sure you have a safe Memorial Day weekend celebration.

Deputies will be patrolling to make sure drivers are not impaired, obeying speed limits and also checking for seat belt compliance during the current Click It or Ticket initiative.

If you're going to be on the water, make sure you have enough life jackets for everyone aboard, follow all boating laws and be sure to watch out for vessels and swimmers. Also file a float plan with a loved one or close friend.
