QUEBEC CITY, Que. — Quebec roads were safer in 2001 than in any other year over the past five decades, according to the latest statistics.

There were 615 deaths on Quebec roads, and 5,062 injuries. That represents a drop of 20 per cent and six per cent, respectively, from the previous year.

Serge Menard, Quebec’s Minister of Transport, says the numbers can be attributed to improved roads and an increased police presence.
