According to a report by the Société de l’assurance automobile du Québec (SAAQ), the annual number of driver offenses related to non-compliance with pedestrian and cyclist priority at intersections quadrupled between 2005 and 2014.
Drivers, cyclists and pedestrians: road safety is everyone’s responsibility.
The City of Westmount has installed the traffic signs below at certain intersections to remind drivers:
- to completely halt their vehicle at the stop line or face a fine
- to completely halt their vehicle at the stop line and give way to pedestrians or face a fine.
