FORT-COULONGE – Two young men who ignored local municipalities’ persistent requests to refrain from driving on flooded roads have been reprimanded after they videotaped themselves speeding along a severely flooded residential area,
making large waves, and then posted it to social media the evening of April 30.
The driver, who filmed the episode with his cell phone, was fined $2,027 and
lost nine demerit points for participating in actions that could damage property and for using a cell phone while driving.  
“As for the passenger, he contacted the police in order to explain the facts and to take responsibility for his actions. He made an agreement with the municipality where he will volunteer and make equipment available to them to make up for his actions,” said Louis-Philippe Bibeau, Sûreté du Québec communications agent.
Traffic on flooded roads contributes to further damage by creating waves that can compromise fragile berms and sandbag walls.
