Cote Saint-Luc Public Security officer Jean-Noel Champagne

While I’m often asked about the issuance of tickets in Cote Saint-Luc it can be said that many of thee are a voluntary tax.  If motorists respect the bylaws that are in place for the safety and security of all there would hardly be a need to issue a ticket in the first place.

That said, the CSL Public Security department issues hundreds of tickets each month for vehicles parked in handicap spots without the required permit, parking in emergency lanes (the area marked as no parking in reserve for fire trucks and other emergency responders in front of buildings), parking in bus stops or otherwise blocking traffic.

CSL PS routinely patrols school zones (in fact they’re at a different local school every morning) along with the Montreal Police Department. Day in and out there are parents illegally parked in front of schools making it more dangerous for all the kids going to and coming from school.  The schools as well as parents and local residents regularly ask for increased patrols and enforcement in these important spots.

CSL PS only issues tickets for non-moving violations and other municipal bylaws.  The police are uniquely mandated to enforce moving violations under the Quebec Highway Safety Act.
