Sergeant Matt Lillibridge and the Traffic Deputies want to take a moment to provide the following information…..

With all of the recent inclement weather please remember…

You must utilize your headlights whenever you are using your windshield wipers.


Hazard lights are only to be utilized during emergency situations with your vehicle while it is stopped or parked.

Please do not drive with the hazard lights activated. Use extra caution when driving in heavy downpours and high wind situations. As always, drive safely.

Traffic Tip Tuesday is a weekly post designed to educate our citizens and to increase traffic safety. Florida Statute has numerous traffic violations, and each week only one tip can be covered.

Hernando County deputies are very proactive in traffic enforcement. In 2014 Hernando County traffic fatalities were lower than 2013.

Members of the Traffic Unit conduct traffic enforcement each and every day throughout the county, unfortunately not every violation can be witnessed by a deputy. For this reason, traffic tips are posted to provide education in an attempt to make our roadways safer.

If you have a traffic complaint, please contact our office at 352-754-6830 to have a unit dispatched to the area. Thank you.
