Road Safety Measures

Town has adopted Genivar’s measures to slow down traffic in 2008. Measures provided by Genivar included a decision-matrix to handle citizen complaints, a tool box as well as request and petition forms for residents.

To request a speed survey, a resident must demonstrate his/her neighbours support his/her request by completing and submitting a petition form to the service des infrastructures.

Multi-use trail in La Cité-des-Papillons

Risk of collisions between pedestrians, cyclists and all-terrain vehicles

Pedestrians and cyclists of the Cité-des-Papillons sector have access to a multi-use trail from Rue des Saturnes and Rue des Monarques.

The City wishes to advise users that:

  • At the end of this multi-use trail, another trail crosses, this time dedicated to all-terrain vehicles
  • It is forbidden to venture on foot or by bike on this ATV trail
  • A real risk of collision does exist
  • Signs will be posted to advise users when the trail comes to an end and the where the risk of collision begins

As a preventative measure, please advise all members of your family who may inadvertently venture there during the day or evening when visibility is reduced, especially children and teens.

Hearing impaired road signs

Road signs warn drivers of the presence of hearing impaired residents.
The hearing impaired  could be startled by cars or cyclists.

Please be mindful !

Pedestrian Crossings

The Town also inaugurate its new pedestrian crossing at the corner of Montée Saint-Lazare and Chemin Sainte-Angélique. This initiative is in keeping with the Town’s commitment to make the village core more user-friendly for pedestrians. 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.
