5 Main Causes of Car Crashes

Below are the 5 main causes of car crashes in BC according to ICBC:

  1. Distracted driving
    Leave your phone alone—that’s a first step to help keep your attention on the road.
  2. Alcohol-impaired driving
    Plan for a safe ride home before your first drink to keep our roads safer for everyone.
  3. Drug-impaired driving
    If you’re impaired by cannabis or other drugs, your ability to drive safely is compromised. Leave the driving to someone sober like a friend, designated driver, taxi, or transit.
  4. Speed
    Speeding is one of the leading causes of car crash fatalities in B.C. Keep yourself safe by slowing down, keeping your distance and passing with care.
  5. High-risk driving
    Following too closely and failing to yield are two of the most common high-risk driving behaviours that cause crashes.
