Attention all Montreal drivers! For any of you who run the occasional red, or tend to push the speed limit, be on the look out. From May 11th-17th, Montreal police will be on ticket patrol, in commemoration of National Road Safety Week.
While the idea of the road police breathing down your neck isn't a pleasant one, they are doing it for a good cause. The rise of ticketing regulations in Quebec have actually decreased deaths on the road by half, in less than 15 years.
So keep your eyes peeled, your foot resting gingerly on the gas pedal, and the thought in mind that this increased vigilance will only last a week. Though we should always be careful on the road! Good luck Montreal.
