ICBC has launched their Fall Distracted Driving Campaign!
Roughly one in four fatal crashes on B.C. roads involves driver distraction. That’s why ICBC and police around the province are encouraging drivers to take a break from their phones.
Even if you’re not using your phone, you may still be distracted. Any diversion of your attention away from the safe operation of your vehicle, like chatting with passengers, eating or drinking, or adjusting radio or vehicle settings, can contribute to distracted and inattentive driving. We all play a part in making our roads safe – when you’re behind the wheel, focus on the road.
Is that text worth the risk? Even short glances away from the road increases your risk of crashing. Before you read and respond, safely pull over and park. Otherwise, #LeaveYourPhoneAlone
