The Sûreté du Québec is intensifying its road operations Saturday and Sunday to avoid a repeat of last weekend which proved deadly.
The SQ indicates the same time there was an increase of 11% of fatal collisions this year compared to the same period last year. For the first seven months, they number 132 against 119 in 2014.
The police force wants to reverse the trend.
Thus, the patrol will be more numerous this weekend to monitor particularly drink driving and speeding.
