Police train to patrol Cape Coral streets by bicycle

The Cape Coral Police Department is launching a bike patrol program as part of a collaboration with the City of Cape Coral, Cape Coral Bike-Ped, BikeWalkLee, and the Lee MPO to improve bike/ped safety in Lee County.  As one of the officers pointed out, "If people see the police on bikes I would hope motorists would be more cautious."  Kudos to the Cape Coral Police!
