Stanstead Journal - - NEWS - Vic­to­ria Vanier

Two ve­hi­cles were in­volved in an ac­ci­dent on Prin­ci­pale Street, in the Beebe sec­tor, last Fri­day

“Among some of our clien­tele, like se­niors, the fire­fight­ers will even in­stall the bat­ter­ies. We are try­ing our best to make sure the pop­u­la­tion is safe,” ex­plained Dany Ro­bitaille, the head of the pre­ven­tion divi­sion of the SPCIS. The vis­its take place dur­ing the day and evening, from Mon­day to Satur­day, in all of the bor­oughs. af­ter­noon at around 3:00 pm. One woman was hurt and taken by am­bu­lance to the hospi­tal in Ma­gog. The ori­gin of the ac­ci­dent was thought to have been caused by one ve­hi­cle fol­low­ing the one in front of it too closely. The driver in the tail-gat­ing ve­hi­cle was given a fine that to­talled $169 with the fees and two de­merit points. Un­der ideal driv­ing con­di­tions, driv­ers are rec­om­mended to stay be­tween two and three full sec­onds be­hind the ve­hi­cle in front of them, or one car length for roughly ev­ery 13 kilo­me­tres per hour of speed.
