10 tips to make British Columbia’s roads safer


A driver checks his cellphone and blows through a crosswalk. A truck narrowly misses a cyclist. A commuter doesn’t wait her turn at a four-way stop. Horns blare. Tempers flare. Each scenario is a recipe for a crash – and each is completely preventable.

The streets of British Columbia are getting more dangerous. Every two minutes, there’s a car crash in the province — that’s a staggering 875 a day, and a 23 per cent increase in the past three years. Accidents can have devastating consequences, but by following a few simple steps from Insurance Corporation of British Columbia, you can protect yourself and your fellow motorists.

It’s easy to turn your once-dreaded commute into an enjoyable experience. Leave a little bit earlier, cue up your favourite podcast, treat your fellow motorists with respect and relax. You’ll arrive at your destination safer and happier.
