New alligator warning signs going up at Florida bus stops

FORT MYERS (WBBH) — Parents in several Florida communities are noticing new warning signs around their apartments, very close to bus stops.

“Watch out for alligator” signs went up overnight inside a few properties owned by Northland Investment Corporation. Many bodies of water in complexes are potential homes for alligators and not far from where children play and walk.

Melissa Travis walks her four children home from the bus stop at Reflection Lakes Apartments in south Fort Myers every day.

“There’s not really a clear spot for us to park to go and walk and get them,” she said.

Their walk from the bus stop to the car isn’t long, but water is close by.
