October, Pedestrian Month

By ,

The Société de l'assurance automobile du Québec (SAAQ) has launched its annual campaign to increase pedestrian awareness about the importance of being vigilant.

Using the slogan “Distraction, carelessness and impatience can leave marks,” the SAAQ wants pedestrians to remember to obey traffic signs and signals, cross at intersections, and beware of heavy vehicle blind spots.

What's more, law enforcement agencies in several municipalities across the province will lead operations on pedestrian safety. These initiatives encourage obeying traffic rules with special emphasis on the importance of vigilance and courtesy on the road for both pedestrians and drivers.
