This coming long weekend in Canada, thousands will take to the roads to take advantage of the first warm holiday of the year. Victoria Day (Patriots' Day in Quebec) comes just as the country finally makes its turn from raw spring weather to the gentle embrace of early summer.\nAs a result, highways are sure to be congested. Thus, to ensure road safety, Sûreté du Québec is alerting motorists to increased security measures this weekend. As part of these efforts, there will be more police officers monitoring highways in the province.\nAccording to Narcity Québec and a statement released to the media, officers will be on the lookout for drivers who are speeding, using cellphones, not wearing a seatbelt, and engaging in reckless activity.\nThe fine for not wearing a seatbelt, alone, is between $200 and $300, in addition to three demerit points, according to the Société de l'assurance automobile (SAAQ). Fines for speeding, meanwhile, can be anywhere between $15 and $155 in most circumstances.\n"Excessive speeding" can earn fines between $350 and $1,950, according to an SAAQ document.\nView this post on Instagram À l'occasion du long congé, les patrouilleurs intensifieront leurs interventions en prévision du fort achalandage prévu sur les routes.
