Vision zero: Jean Lamarche wants to wait for the study on the road safety
Trois-Rivières (MMG) — Jean Lamarche, expect the results of the study commissioned by the City of Trois-Rivières and the ministry of Transport on road safety in the city before committing to implement Vision zero, if he is elected to the city council of Trois-Rivières, may 5th.
“After several discussions with a large number of Trifluviens, I make the observation that the philosophy of Vision zero, in the formula presented on the 6th of November last, does not receive the accession of the population, he said in a statement released Sunday evening. It is clear that citizens are concerned about road safety, but they will not be signing a blank cheque to the city council.”
Mr. Lamarche also hope that the measures taken over the past five years aimed at improving road safety are taken into account in the reflection on Vision zero.
The candidate also thanked the actors and organizations that participated in the public consultations which, according to him, “helped to foster constructive dialogue and positive on the issue of road safety while ensuring the accessibility of information for the Trifluviennes and Trifluviens”.
Remember that the candidate for mayor Jean-Francois Aubin has already taken a position in that folder, letting it be known that he opposed the reduction of the speed limit to 40 km/h for all local streets and collector of the City. The third applicant declared in this race, Eric Lord, had indicated last week wanted to wait for the end of the consultation before making a decision.
