Brian Wallace dumping ICBC’s financial woes on the B.C. Liberals is a gross oversimplification of what is going on daily on our roads.
The fact is that both bodily injury and material damage accidents have been soaring for the past 12 months. A daily dose of watching the nightly news clearly demonstrates that fact.
For whatever reason, a deadly combination of drivers with attitude, continuing cellphone use, and too many seniors living in a world of their own, has produced a deadly mix.
Locally, what happens every day on Highway 14 is vivid proof. More locally, just try driving five minutes on Otter Point Road without encountering the one obligatory headlight burnt out, the at least 20 km/h over the limit, and a steady stream of one foot over into the oncoming lane drivers. And the clouds of “non-tobacco” smoke blowing from some doesn’t help.
