(May 5, 2016)-  The Cape Coral Police Department will conduct another High Visibility Enforcement (HVE) operation, as part of its Impaired Driving Project, tonight.

This is the fourth HVE operation since being awarded a second grant from the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT).

The goal of the Impaired Driving Project is to conduct special HVE operations focused on impaired driving in an effort to reduce crashes, injuries, and fatalities attributable to impaired driving.

The operation will be a 5-officer traffic saturation patrol that will focus on impaired drivers citywide tonight, Thursday, May 5, 2016, running from 7:00 PM to 3:00 AM.

"Tonight is a busy night at bars as many go out to celebrate Cinco de Mayo.  If you are going to celebrate Cinco de Mayo, please do so smartly.  Have a designated driver, take a taxi, get a ride."- Det. Sergeant Dana Coston, Cape Coral Police Department Public Affairs Officer.
