Quebec and Montreal to take part in pilot study of photo radars
First publishedon www.WorldHighways.com
The Canadian cities of Quebec and Montreal are to take part in a pilot study involving speed control devices.
The country’s government has authorised the installation of photo radars, speedometers and other photographic speed control devices at strategic points along the municipal road network of both major cities.
Details of the pilot project will be presented to the National Assembly by Quebec's Transport Minister, Pierre Moreau. There are currently around 15 photographic speed control devices in operation in the province of Quebec, across the regions of Chaudiere-Appalaches, Monteregie and Montreal. The idea is to install the new photo radars specifically in areas where accident levels are highest and where traditional police traffic surveillance is lacking.
