Distracted driving remains the third leading cause of fatal car crashes in B.C., trailing behind speed and impaired driving. On average, 91 people are killed each year in B.C. due to driver distractions, such as using a hand-held electronic device behind the wheel.
That’s why today, the B.C. government, police and ICBC launched a month-long distracted driving campaign and are asking drivers to leave the phone alone and stay focused on the road.
