BC Courts Coat of ArmsThis case involves a collision at the intersection of 86 Avenue and 160 Street in Surrey. Joshua Donato had stopped for the stop sign westbound on 86 Avenue intending to turn right. Due to limited visibility he moved forward and slightly to the right in anticipation of making the turn.

CASE LAW - Toevs v Williams

BC Courts Coat of ArmsRyan Toevs parked his truck on West 4th Avenue in Vancouver. He exited the truck and walked across the street to deliver an envelope to a friend. Following that delivery, he observed traffic and determined that it was safe for him to cross back to his truck and enter it. On arriving at the driver's door, Mr. Toevs decided that it would not be safe to open the door and stood with his back to the truck to let approaching vehicles pass.

CASE LAW - Derkson v ICBC

BC Courts Coat of ArmsIn the early morning hours of April 25, 2015 Kendall Derkson was driving her vehicle on Highway 10 in Surrey. She struck a vehicle driven by Patrick Chan, destroying her vehicle in the process. ICBC refused to cover her loss as she was in breach of her conditions of insurance for being “incapable of proper control of the vehicle” at the time of the collision due to the influence of alcohol.

CASE LAW - Singh v Lepitre

BC Courts Coat of ArmsSandra Lepitre parked her car at the curb in front of 2871 Aurora Road in North Vancouver and walked to work from there. At lunchtime, Amrinder Singh and Jaskirat Singh Sekhon, who had been working at a nearby construction site, sat on the street in front of Ms. Lepitre's car to eat.

CASE LAW - Parmar v Rink

CASE LAW - R v Nikirk

BC Courts Coat of ArmsIf Tenessa Nikirk could undo the moments in her life that caused this collision, I have no doubt that she would. The bad judgment (and driving) that she exhibited on December 20, 2017 in Saanich lead to a collision with an 11 year old girl in a crosswalk leaving the girl with life shattering injuries that she will never recover from. Nikirk has been convicted of dangerous driving causing bodily injury.

CASE LAW - Charton-Miner v Hedgecock

BC Courts Coat of ArmsThis incident involves a collision between a cyclist, Valerie Charlton-Miner and a driver, Reginald Hedgecock at the intersection of Hollywood Road South and Highway 33 in Kelowna.

From left to right at the intersection approach is a left turn lane, a through lane, a right turn lane and the cycle lane.
