High­way safety cam­paign re­sults re­vealed

Sherbrooke Record - - LOCAL NEWS -

The Sûreté du Québec, the Montreal Po­lice Depart­ment, the As­so­ci­a­tion of Que­bec Po­lice Chiefs, the So­ciété de l 'as­sur­ance au­to­mo­bile du Québec, and Con­trôle Routier Québec, have filed their re­port on the road safety op­er­a­tion con­ducted jointly from Septem­ber 22 to 28.

The SQ re­ported more than 620 in­frac­tions dur­ing the numer­ous op­er­a­tions car­ried out through­out the Town­ships and cen­tral Que­bec. Across the prov­ince, that num­ber reached more than 9,500.

Po­lice specif­i­cally tar­geted the use of cell phones while driv­ing and also re­sponded to other of­fenses un­der the High­way Safety Code and the Crim­i­nal Code.

Col­lab­o­ra­tion among the var­i­ous part­ners, com­bin­ing ed­u­ca­tion, pre­ven­tion, in­ter­ven­tion and com­mu­ni­ca­tion, is al­ways ben­e­fi­cial for road safety and con­trib­utes to im­prov­ing the sense of safety for users of the road net­work.

Get­ting road users to un­der­stand the risks posed by the road and to adopt safe and re­spon­si­ble be­hav­ior with op­er­a­tions like this con­trib­utes to im­prov­ing the qual­ity of life for all Que­be­cers.
