Big season for CAA-Quebec's Pothole Watch



    QUEBEC, June 2 /CNW Telbec/ - With the end of the spring thaw on Quebec's
roads, CAA-Quebec is putting its www.caaquebec.com Pothole Watch site "into
storage" for another year. Since February 26, a record number of 2,591
potholes were posted and the authorities were informed of each one to ensure
immediate action. A large majority of the potholes have been temporarily
repaired.
    "The authorities must now permanently repair all these potholes which
cause motorists an endless amount of frustration," says Sophie Gagnon,
CAA-Quebec's Senior Director, Public and Government Relations, adding: "An
enormous undertaking awaits each municipality and the Quebec Transport
Ministry."

    A long season comes to an end ...

    And so does the eighth year of Pothole Watch. The website is easy and
effective, making it a unique and vital tool. Each year, it helps ensure safe
roads for users and serves as a reminder that Quebec's road network requires
ongoing investments. The 2008 edition is certainly proof of that.

    ... and makes way for another!

    As usual, there will be roadworks sites border-to-border in Quebec this
summer. That is why CAA-Quebec is reminding all motorists to be patient and to
follow road signs designed to ensure the safety of both road users and
construction workers. The Transport Ministry's Inforoutière website
(http://www.inforoutiere.qc.ca/en/index.asp) contains information about
roadworks.

    CAA-Quebec, a not-for-profit organization, provides automotive, travel,
residential and financial services, benefits and privileges to its 950,000
members.
