“Since the pandemic, especially last summer, the race track was the Côte de la Montagne, Côte de la Fabrique, Côte du Palais, rue de Buade and it was going down again. It was on a regular basis. It was really dangerous ”, denounces Mr. Pérusse.
Mr. Pérusse had formulated a request to the City of Quebec to put in velocity bumps in the district, these well-known velocity bumps, in order to cut back the velocity and stop the excesses.
However, the City has not advocated this technique for a number of years, says spokesperson David O’Brien.
“These have little effect on reducing speed on a street. They allow traffic to be slowed down a few meters upstream and downstream of the speed bump only. In addition, the installation of speed bumps is not favored in the corridors used by public transport and is harmful to the circulation of emergency vehicles and to snow plows during snow removal operations in winter ”, he explains by electronic mail.
SDC Vieux-Québec understands what’s at stake. She had due to this fact given up the velocity bump as an answer. In the meantime, it nonetheless runs in the world, on rue Saint-Louis, from the door to the Château Frontenac, denounces Mr. Pérusse. Cars typically have enjoyable accelerating very early in the morning, round 3-4 a.m., he says.
The pandemic has made the streets extra empty, which creates a sensible playground for motorists at fault.
“I recently discussed this with the police. They will watch this. The workforce is focused on COVID for compliance with instructions. The bike squads will start, that will help. There will be mainly in the corner of Grande-Allée and Old Quebec, ”additionally signifies the president of the SDC of Old Quebec.
