Wet conditions increase risk of pedestrian-related car accidents

Both pedestrians and drivers have concerns when traveling, especially in dark or rainy weather. This is the conclusion of a new survey from the Insurance Corporation of British Columbia (ICBC), which found that nine out of 10 drivers worry about hitting a pedestrian at night. Pedestrians were similarly concerned with the potentiality of car accidents in these circumstances, with eight out of 10 saying they don't feel safe in dark and wet conditions.

Crack down on distracted driving aims to reduce car accidents

The end of September's "Distracted Driving Awareness Month" does not mean a end to enforcement and education on the issue. Part of the campaign from the Insurance Corporation of British Colubmia (ICBC) includes working with local police forces to enforce laws governing the use of cell phones and minimizing other distractions on the road. One such crack down took place on September 28, when West Shore RCMP conducted a distracted driving blitz. Law enforcement hopes that their attention to the issue will reduce car accidents resulting from distracted driving.
