New photo radar units to hit the road
The days of motorists slowing down as they approach photo radar units , and then speeding up once they are past may be numbered.
The Transport Ministry has put out a call for tenders for 37 more photo radar units, including nine on wheels that can be moved around and placed in different locations.
The tender documents, obtained by The Journal de Montreal, calls for the units to be stand alone, to be theft and vandalism resistant and to be able to operate for several days on battery power.
The other 28 photo radar units in the would be the standard fixed and mobile units mounted in vans.
The new units will be distributed across Quebec including Montreal, Laval, and the South Shore.
