Cote St. Luc to outfit its snowplows with cameras

The city of Cote St. Luc is putting side-guards and cameras on its six snowplows.

The cameras will be on the passenger side and rear of the trucks, giving drivers improved visibility of pedestrians or obstructions when they're backing up or turning right, and will cost the city $4000 in all.

Westmount installed a similar system last November — a direct result of the death of 21-year-old Jessica Holman-Price, the Westmount woman killed by a snow-removal vehicle in 2005.
