Lower Speed Limit to Be Introduced on Some Rosemère Streets
Starting February10, a new 40km/h speed limit will be in effect on three of Rosemère’s main arteries, namely Grande-Côte Road, Roland-Durand Boulevard and Montée Lesage. This change has been implemented in an effort to improve the safety of motorists, pedestrians, cyclists and other road users.
In recent months, a number of Rosemère residents have voiced their concerns about the speed limit on these thoroughfares. As a result, the Town’s Road Safety Committee, which includes the Régie intermunicipale de police Thérèse-De Blainville, has looked into the matter and come up with a set of recommendations on reducing the limit on these three high-traffic streets.
“The safety of our residents is a top priority for the Town,” said Rosemère Mayor Eric Westram. “Given that speeding is one of the main causes of road accidents in Quebec, it is essential that traffic-calming measures be put into place to mitigate these risks and protect all users.”
Note that signs have already been put up on the designated streets and that the upcoming change will be announced on all of the Town’s communication platforms to notify the public of the lower speed limit.
