While summer is many people's favourite season thanks to the nice weather, CAA-Quebec is warning us that it's also a very dangerous time for driving.

The time between Saint-Jean and Labour Day is described as "the 75 deadliest days on the road." In 2020, 98 people were killed on the road during that period.
CAA-Quebec is hoping to beat such statistics this year. The non-profit organization is asking that Quebecers remember to "adopt responsible behaviours" on the road, including keeping a distance between you and other vehicles, driving within the speed limit, and wearing a seat belt.
"Not only is wearing a seatbelt mandatory, it's also an easy way to prevent up to 35 deaths per year."
