Brownsburg-Chatham asks SQ to increase speed enforcement in Greece’s Point

More enforcement is all the town of Brownsburg-Chatham can ask for when it comes to excessive speed along chemin des Outaouais (Route 344) in the Greece’s Point area.

In October 2020, residents delivered a petition with 93 names on it requesting that the speed limit be better enforced on the narrow road through the mostly residential area where the speed limit is 50 kilometres per hour. The town sent a letter to the Ministère des Transports du Québec (MTQ) requesting increased enforcement by the Sûreté du Québec (SQ) and for the department to consider using photo radar and electronic speed warning signage in the area.

However, the town received a response from the MTQ in March stating the situation in Greece’s Point does not warrant electronic speed limit signs or photo radar because it is not a high collision area but does recommend increased police enforcement.

On May 4, Brownsburg-Chatham council approved a resolution requesting the SQ increase speed enforcement along Route 344 in Greece’s Point.
