Police roadside spot check comes up empty...and that's good
If you were crossing the Jacques Cartier Bridge Thursday night there would have been a good chance you would be pulled over by police.
The Sûreté du Québec set up the first of its seasonal-roadside spot checks last night stopping 800 motorists.
14 were asked to take a breathalyzer, and all passed.
The provincial police force, along with municipal police departments across Quebec kicked off a month of stepped-up spot checks for the holiday season to test drivers for alcohol and drug use behind the wheel.
The campaign will run until January 3.
