Reduce the need for speed

With the nicer weather, the region sees more visitors and therefore more motorists on the road.

ICBC reminds motorists that speed can kill.

According to data from the Crown Corporation, driving just five kilometers per hour above the speed limit increases the risk of a crash by 50%.

According to ICBC, an average of 84 people are killed and 2,168 people are injured in speed-related crashes across the province.

“Speed ​​is a major contributing factor to fatal collisions in B.C.,” said Chief Supt. Holly Turton, officer in charge of BC Highway Patrol, said in a news release. “Police stations across the province will be looking for speeding drivers to make our roads safer for everyone. Slow down so you have more time to respond to the unexpected and reduce the risk of a crash.”
