"Operation Orange" targets speeders

Here's a heads up for motorists whose daily commute takes them through construction zones: provincial police will be paying particular attention to those zones tomorrow, as part of a one-day safety blitz orchestrated by the Transport Ministry.

Portable photo radar devices will be part of "Operation Orange."

The ministry is reminding drivers that there were more than 938 people were involved in accidents in construction zones last year and five people were killed.

Transport Quebec is also reminding motorists that the fines for speeding through the zones are double the usual.

    Amazing announcement. Which day will they be enforcing pedestrian crosswalk laws and where? How about when and where will they have drunk driving checkpoints? Where exactly and when will dangerous driving laws be enforced. I'd like to know when it will be safe.

      @sam Yeah, I've got to agree with Sam, this is not helpful to the cause. Now that people know where/when it is, they will slow down in those areas for a certain amount of time before doing it again. It would be better to announce AFTER the fact that there was a checkpoint and how many people were stopped due to dangerous driving.
