Long weekend road ac­ci­dents

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS -

Over the Thanks­giv­ing weekend, there were eleven col­li­sions re­sult­ing in in­juries and twenty-five col­li­sions with only ma­te­rial dam­ages on the ter­ri­tory of the Estrie. 541 tick­ets were given out, two thirds of them for speed­ing. The po­lice handed out 223 warn­ings for var­i­ous in­frac­tions of the road safety code and eleven peo­ple were ar­rested for driv­ing un­der the in­flu­ence.

Last year, the num­ber of tick­ets given out was al­most the same, the num­ber of col­li­sions with in­juries was the same, at 11, but the num­ber of col­li­sions with ma­te­rial dam­age only went down from 44. Ar­rests for drink­ing and driv­ing went up from six last year, how­ever, there were no deaths on the high­ways over the weekend.
