Transport Québec spokesperson Nomba Danielle said some of the radars are in places where police are not always there to enforce the law. Some are placed at intersections and others will monitor construction zones.

“We need these photo radars because we have to ensure road safety,” Danielle said.

Montreal, Laval, Quebec City and the South Shore will each get two new machines.

Quebec hopes to have 50 new photo radar machines in service by the fall.
