The Sûreté du Québec (SQ) is advising the public that it will be increasing surveillance on Quebec roadways and waterways over the next two weeks in time with the province’s annual construction holiday. From July 16 to August 1, travellers should keep their eyes out for officers out on the roads, lakes, and trails as a part of the creatively named, “opération vacances de la construction.”
Operating under the theme, “safety doesn’t take a vacation,” the SQ notes that the purpose of this operation is to remind all vacationers that they must apply the rules of road and recreation safety throughout the year, even when they are on vacation, and must adopt appropriate behaviours to ensure their safety and that of others.
