Although it is gratifying to see the police are aware of the problem posed by cyclists flouting traffic laws it is disappointing to read that our police consider 830 tickets to be significant enforcement.

In the wake of the recent fatal accident involving a collision between a car and bicycle it is even more apparent cyclists must learn to obey the Highway Traffic Safety Act at all times, not just when traffic requires them to. Otherwise, criminal lawyers in Montreal are going to be deluged with cases involving accidental fatalities as well as road rage incidents.
