SQ crackdown during long weekend; road safety blitz underway

Provincial police are out in force this long Labour Day weekend.

They're cracking down on deliquent motorists.

Officers are checking for the usual violations.

"We gonna put some more police officers on the road, more operations. Police officers will check for speeding and using cellphones", said Sgt. Ronald McInnes.

They're also checking for seatbelt use.

The operation runs until Monday.

Two people died during the same long weekend in 2013.

    You know, I drove around for 3 hours yesterday just out of sheer boredom, my route includes the 15, 20, 25, 40, 720, North and South, and various combinations thereof, a few other major roadways I can't think of right now, and the ONLY Police car I ever saw was going the opposite direction from me on the 15 North, no lights or anything. This crackdown must not be in the City of Montreal or Laval then, huh?
