Over 500 signs displayed

Homeowners show strong support for Slower is Safer! awareness campaign

The mayor of the City of Pointe-Claire, Morris Trudeau, is pleased to announce that over 500 homeowners are participating in the road safety awareness campaign by displaying a message in front of their homes encouraging drivers to stay alert to their speed.

“The safety of our citizens is important to us,” explains Mayor Trudeau. “This positive, friendly summer campaign demonstrates our shared desire to behave courteously and respectfully toward others, on both streets and sidewalks.”

The signs encourage people to be careful and behave well on the streets. On a voluntary basis, citizens become ambassadors by displaying a sign in front of their homes that urges drivers to obey the speed limit and show courtesy. The signs are provided and put up free of charge by Public Security.

About 50 posters have been put up near parks and play areas encouraging drivers to be alert.

Four speed display signs, placed strategically throughout the area, also help remind everyone what the speed limits are.

“By focusing on good behaviour, we want to enhance safety within our community through friendly awareness-raising in order to promote civic-mindedness and improve quality of life,” concludes Mayor Trudeau.

To obtain your free sign, contact Public Security (514-630-1234, secpub@pointe-claire.ca) specifying your address and which of the following three signs you would like:
