Kirkland, Beaconsfield, Baie D’Urfé, and St. Anne’s better drive carefully
by Rhonda Massad
Spring is here and Police Station 1 of the SPVM (Service de Police de la Ville de Montréal) will be increasing their efforts to keep roads safe, especially in the month of May. This initiative is part of a Montreal wide program called Project Oasis. The purpose of the project is to incite drivers to share the roads with others in a respectful manner, by sanctioning delinquent and dangerous drivers.
Police will be monitoring specific high risk intersections such as St. Charles-Brunswick and André-Brunet in Kirkland, St. Charles-Autoroute 20 and St Charles-Beaconsfield Blvd in Beaconsfield, Anciens de Combattants-Autoroute 20 and 550 Anciens-Combattants in Sainte Anne De Bellevue and Victoria-Bedford in Baie D’Urfé.
In order to properly cover the seven locations, Station 1 will be calling in assistance from Intervention (West) Section and the Regional Traffic Division. They will be on the look out for drivers committing violations such as blocking the intersection in traffic, red light violation, not respecting signs, handling an electronic device while driving and of course speeding. There will also be an increased police presence on bike paths.
