One thing that actually helps deter criminals from entering the city to commit crimes are our 450 miles of canals. These canals cut the city up allowing for very few roads and streets that allow complete east/ west & north/south driving from one side of the city to the other. In, fact in most cases if you unfamiliar with the city, you need GPS or a map to navigate thru the maze. You may see the road you want, and even your destination, but there is a canal in between.

This is all good news for Cape Coral.
