Cold snap still keeping CAA-Quebec busy

The cold snap means CAA-Quebec is just as busy as ever, though nowhere near any record-setting numbers.

So far they've responded to 4,000 calls across the province, including about 2,000 in the Montreal area, mostly for engine boosts.

Yesterday they answered a total of 6,500 calls in Quebec, about a third of those in the Montreal region.

CAA-Quebec says it was slightly warmer today, resulting in fewer calls.

The record was set in 2011, with over 13,000 calls in one day during a particularly frigid cold spell.
