Quebec's Highways

Quebec has a lot of split phase traffic signals, where each direction of traffic gets its own protected phase.  I'm not sure why they design their signals as such, but there seems to an affinity for complicated traffic signal design in Quebec.  A lot of roads don't have left turn lanes in Quebec that would in Ontario as well from my observations.

I generally find Quebec drivers to be a bit slower than their counterparts in Ontario, however I drove down Hwy 155 from Lake Saint-Jean to Shawinigan earlier this afternoon, and there were no shortages of willing participants in the Saint-Maurice 500 every time a southbound passing lane materialized.

This too. Jesus, I once missed my left turn signal since it only went on for like a second and I just so happen was not looking at that signal for a second and then I saw yellow.

No kidding, I took these photos on Sunday.  Around 4:30 or 5:00 or so.
