You can’t ever be fully protected when you get behind the wheel. But there’s a lot you can do to make better informed decisions.
Set an example - your smart driving decisions can have a significant influence on others.
Driving over the speed limit can be dangerous. And deadly, especially at higher speeds.
Even driving the speed limit, but too fast for conditions—such as in rain or snow—can also result in a crash, injuries or death.
What can you do?
While the impaired driving message is getting through, it hasn’t reached everyone. We are still averaging about 113 people killed each year in B.C.
Impairment starts with the first drink—not after you’ve had a few.
Before heading out for the evening, plan ahead for a safe ride home.
When your child is travelling with you, they’re at a much higher risk of serious injury or death. They are more vulnerable because of their size, weight, and ability to react in a collision.
Make sure you’re using an approved child safety seat, and you’re using it correctly.
