Dixie Beach Road

Sanibel Island, FloridaJan 26, 20042 Comments

Sanibel police use unmarked crown vic and SUV mostly on San-Cap road. Also local police have good instant on radar to get oncoming traffic. End of Dixie Beach Rd a good place for radar as 30 MPH limit too low. Most of island is 35 MPH and Lee Co uses motocycle cops in hiding. Have seen on Middle Gulf and San-Cap roads. 7 MPH over and less seems OK.

San-Cap Road has both a public school and the entrance to the Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge. The road is used by children, tourists and is the only way to get to Captiva Island. In addition, the exit from the Refuge's wildlife drive, a self drive tour, ends a few miles from the entrance and requires a left turn into traffic to get back to the visitors center. Also the Refuge's wildlife do not understand roads and automobiles. 35mph might feel slow as there little development, but it is a safe speed for all that is going on and, they usually don't stop you if you are 3-4 miles over the limit.

Sanibel Island is NOT part of Lee County's jurisdiction, meaning the Sheriffs you see are NOT part of a speed trap. More than likely they live in a house nearby. The only place that Lee County Sheriffs have jurisdiction is on the Causeway (which is NOT part of the city of Sanibel). Captiva is also part of Lee County's jurisdiction.
