Our Corporate Research department is doing important behind-the-scenes work to help keep our roads safer.
Here’s a sampling of our research.
ICBC conducted a series of low-speed crash tests to investigate the safety of child restraint systems following a minor crash.
The tests simulated a 15km/hr impact against a concrete barrier.
None of the child restraints tested showed any failure or signs of deterioration.
Whiplash is the most common type of injury in vehicle crashes.
To help encourage car makers to improve the design of head restraints, ICBC has rated vehicles sold in Canada to show how well their seats and head restraints protect occupants.
Thinking about buying an imported, right-hand-drive vehicle? If so, be sure you understand the risks.
A recent study by ICBC shows that right-hand-drive vehicles are more than 40 per cent likely to crash.
British Columbia Traffic Collision Statistics is an annual report of police-reported traffic collisions.
Since 1995 it has covered police-reported collisions involving a personal injury or a fatality.
