40 km/h in all residential neighbourhoods – Even safer streets

The mayor of Pointe-Claire, John Belvedere, and the members of City Council are pleased to announce a new measure to improve safety on the streets by reducing the speed limit to 40 km/h in all residential neighbourhoods.

“This will help raise awareness among our residents about always choosing the safest habits for pedestrians, cyclists, and motorists alike. Their safety is a responsibility we all share. The goal of this change is to reinforce this idea among all those who travel through our city and confirms our commitment to constantly improve our quality of life in Pointe-Claire,” stated Mayor Belvedere.

The speed limit will also be reduced from 40 to 30 km/h on Du Bord-du-Lac – Lakeshore Road, which runs across Pointe-Claire from west to east along Lake Saint-Louis.

In addition to the digital radar speed signs installed throughout the city to warn motorists about their speed, this measure will improve safety in residential neighbourhoods. The friendly summer road safety campaign is yet another way to raise awareness about being cautious on the streets, sidewalks, and bicycle paths.

“We care about the health and safety of our residents. This safety improvement for our streets shows our focus on obeying the speed limits, civic action, and the right habits we need to adopt,” said Mayor Belvedere in conclusion.
