New speed limits

Reducing the risks and facilitating cohabitation

November 10, 2014, Saint-Lazare, QUEBEC. – Ville de Saint-Lazare wishes to inform its residents that the Quebec Ministry of Transportation has approved by-law 905 changing the speed limit in three specific areas on the Saint-Lazare territory: Montée Poirier, Chemin du Fief and Chemin Sainte-Angélique downtown. This decision stems from road traffic analyses and studies and from numerous requests received from residents in these areas concerned with the safety of both pedestrians and riders. These changes came into force on November 5, 2014.

The speed limits have been reduced as follows:

1)      Chemin du Fief: from 70 km/h to 50 km/h. This unpaved road is very popular among riders.

2)      Montée Poirier: from 80 km/h to 70 km/h to protect the access to the Pinière; and lastly

3)      Chemin Sainte-Angélique (downtown): from 50 km/h to 40 km/h to promote walking as part of Saint-Lazare’s downtown revitalisation project.


Municipal by-laws 905 and RMH-399 are available in their entirety in By-Laws section.

Two additional crossings will be built before the end of the year, also on Chemin Sainte-Angélique: the first one near Rue des Marguerites and the second near Rue Saint-Jean-Baptiste.


When you are walking1

  • go to the nearest intersection to cross;
  • walk on the sidewalk, or, if there isn't one, walk on the side of the road, facing traffic;
  • avoid crossing the street between two parked cars;
  • wear light-coloured clothes or clothing with reflective strips so that you are easily visible

When you are driving1

  • bring your vehicle to a stop before the stop line;
  • obey road signs and traffic signals for pedestrians;
  • before turning right on a red light where permitted, yield the right-of-way to pedestrians;
  • keep your headlights on at all times so that pedestrians can see you and you can see them.
