The SVP-MERCI Program was created to identify recurrent problems involving failure to respect speed limits and mandatory stops in Pincourt’s streets.
Launched in conjunction with the Sûreté du Québec in 2010, the program aims to streamline road safety operations. SVP-MERCI is in fact an acronym for “Surveillance des Vitesses Potentielles et Mesures et Équipements de Réduction et Contrôle des Impacts.”
The principle behind the program is to focus on prevention in order to strengthen residents’ sense of personal safety. By paying attention to your concerns, the Town is better able to enforce its road safety by-laws.
(Note that requests cannot be made anonymously.)
How to report a violation

In the Description box, be sure to clarify the situation by indicating whether it is a recurrent speed problem or stop omission, the relevant streets and the time of the week when the problem occure.
- Call 514 453-8981, ext. 375, and leave a message on the SVP-MERCI Program’s voice mailbox.
