What’s Your Emergency: Motorists in Montreal must call 911 for a tow

Montreal, Quebec 911 dispatchers in Montreal are about to get a lot busier. Montreal Police announced on Monday that motorists who’s vehicles are blocking traffic on Montreal Island streets, due to mechanical issues or a collision, must call 911 to contact a tow truck.

The policy follows a 2017 city inspector general’s report on towing services in Montreal and is aimed at “standardizing towing operations in the agglomeration of Montreal and offering road users quality service with regulated rates,” according to a statement issued by the Montreal police department.

The new policy does not apply to motorists on provincial highways, or to private parking spots – *4141 still services those situations.
