2022 Summer campaign – Road safety, I do my part!

The mayor of the City of Pointe-Claire, Tim Thomas, and the members of City Council are pleased to announce the 2022 summer road safety awareness campaign under the theme “Road safety, I do my part!”

This new campaign aims to raise awareness in the community about sharing the road and the right actions to take while driving, biking or on foot to ensure everyone’s safety. Various messages will be broadcast on social media, televisions in municipal buildings and the City’s electronic billboards during the summer to highlight the importance of sharing the road, and being careful and courteous. With a concern for the environment, the campaign will be entirely digital.

“Everyone has a part to play in making our streets safer. We are all involved in road safety, whether pedestrians, cyclists, motorists, or all three! This campaign aims to remind people to adopt the right actions, respect the rules, share the road and be courteous,” says Mayor Thomas.

Recommend a radar speed sign

Radar speed signs will be back in our neighbourhoods to remind motorists of the importance of slowing down and respecting the speed limit.

The City will call on the community for a second year to recommend locations for radar speed signs this summer. Three speed signs will be set up in as many sectors for one week, covering more than 60 streets in the territory over a period of more than 20 weeks.

Your recommendations may be for a sector, an intersection, an address, a public place, etc. We would ask that you specify the traffic direction. For example: In front of City Hall, on Saint-Jean Boulevard, northbound.

Fill out the form by May 20 to share your recommendations with us.

Requests will be reviewed by the Inspection – Public Security Department. The schedule of locations will be available at the end of May and will be posted on this Web page.
