The speed limit in Montreal's residential areas will be brought down to 40 km/h. City officials hope that the measure will be fully implanted by the new year, and state that the first group to benefit from it will be pedestrians. The 50 km/h speed limit will remain for industrial sectors, main arteries, and streets on which public transit vehicles run.

Have you switched to winter tires yet? If you haven't, better get to it: the deadline was today. Quebec's mandatory law requires all vehicles to be equipped with snow tires between Dec. 15 and March 15 every year.

Speaking of deadlines, if you haven't had your piggy-flu (aka A-H1N1) shot yet, it's now or never. Walk-in flu vaccine clinics will be closing on Friday. After that, it's off to your friendly neighborhood CSSS, for a small fee.

According to the Montreal Children's Hospital, those really annoying musical cards might pose a threat to more than just your sanity. The batteries that power such cards are easy to rip off, and toddlers might be tempted to stick 'em in their mouths, leaking chemicals in their bodies. According to Dr. Sam Daniel, an ear, nose and throat specialist at the hospital, over 3,000 children swallow batteries every year in the United States.
