ICBC has launched their Fall Distracted Driving Campaign!
One of the most pressing concerns on the roads is distracted driving, which continues to be a leading cause of accidents and injuries. Distracted driving is a factor in nearly 40% of police-reported car crash injuries and contributes to over 6,500 police-reported injuries and 77 deaths in B.C. each year. Research shows that drivers are 3.6 times more likely to crash if they’re using a hand-held electronic device while driving.
Police across B.C. will be ramping up enforcement throughout September, and community police volunteers will be setting up Cell Watch deployments to remind drivers to leave their phones alone.
