One quarter of deaths on B.C. roads involve distracted driving: ICBC

first_imgVANCOUVER, B.C. — B.C.’s auto insurer is teaming up with the Province and RCMP to launch a month-long campaign against distracted driving for March.ICBC says distracted driving is responsible for 27 per cent of all fatal crashes in the province. While there are many different types of distractions for drivers, the most common one is use of personal electronic devices, such as phones.“Most drivers understand that using their phone increases their risk of crashing yet many still do it,” a press release from the corporation states.- Advertisement -“Safety on our highways and in our communities is our top priority,” said Minister of Transportation and Infrastructure Todd Stone, referencing a statistic from the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety that states the odds of crashing are increased five fold while drivers use their phone — whether that’s dialing, texting, reading, or using social media.Police will be ramping up their enforcement of distracted driving across the province, and Cell Watch volunteers will be on the sides of roads to remind drivers to leave their phones alone.ICBC will be represented by road safety coordinators attending community events across the province with a driving simulator the public can try.Advertisement Mike Morris, Minister of Public Safety, says distracted driving remains a ‘serious concern.’“We’re committed to taking steps to make our roads safer for everyone,” he added. “Police across B.C. are doing their part to change behaviours by enforcing the law and we can all do our part by letting every phone call or text wait until we reach our destination.”The penalty for driving while distracted is a $167 fine, and three penalty points on your license.last_img read more
