Easter weekend police safety blitz

Quebec provincial police have been conducting increased safety patrols along the border today as Quebecers headed to the US for Easter.

The operation, Road Safety without Borders, has been carried out in partnership with Ontario counterparts, as well as state police from New York, Vermont, Maine and New Hampshire.

"We had four fatal crashes during the four day weekend and last year, in 2013, we only had one crash. And that's a significant decrease of collisions and and we're working to the all elusive goal of no collisions", SQ spokesman Paul Leduc told CTV News.

The police effort, thought, doesn't end there.

Authorties will also be patrolling roads in Quebec during the long weekend in order to ensure motorists respect speed limits, among other things.
