     Why crashes happen

    Why crashes happen

    A quick text at a red light. One last drink before driving. Failing to yield to a pedestrian or driving over the speed limit. These are just a few examples of poor driving decisions that can cause crashes.

    Distracted driving

    When you’re distracted, your reactions are slower. Most rear-end crashes resulting in injury are caused by distracted drivers. If you’re looking at your phone, you can’t see the road – so leave your phone alone when you’re behind the wheel.

    High-risk driving

    Find out about the most common high-risk driving behaviours that causes crashes, including why intersections are dangerous and how to give way to other road users.

    Impaired driving

    Driving under the influence of alcohol and drugs is a bad idea. Plan for a safe ride home before your first drink to keep our roads safer for everyone.

    Speed

    Speeding is a major contributing factor to car crash fatalities in B.C. The faster you go, the longer it takes to stop – and the more dangerous a crash can be.
