Provincial police will be keeping a close eye on the roads this long weekend. The Sûreté du Québec (SQ) is advising drivers who are planning to head out of town for Easter gatherings or holiday escapes to be especially careful between April 15 and 18.

Higher traffic than usual is expected on highways over the next three days, as families leave the city to visit relatives.

They'll also be monitoring for passengers not wearing a seatbelt.
