VIDEO - Raised Center Medians

VideoI enjoy these videos by Road Guy Rob. He explains how the road structures that we use daily function in an easy to understand manner. In this video he takes on the subject of raised medians. On one hand, they prevent crashes, but on the other, they keep us from turning left where we might want to. This video explains how engineers decide how to build raised medians.

VIDEO - Leading Pedestrian Intervals

VideoHere's a simple, almost no cost change in pedestrian walk signal timing that can reduce vehicle / pedestrian collisions by as much as 60%. Instead of illuminating the white pedestrian light at the same time as the green light for traffic, the pedestrian gets a few seconds head start. This puts them out into the intersection before drivers start to move, making them more visible.

VIDEO - Signs, Signals & Pavement Markings for Cyclists

VideoBruce Mol is a cyclist from Vernon who likes to help others learn about cycling in everyday life. In this video from his YouTube channel, he examines signs, signals and pavement markings from the point of view of a cyclist. The information that he presents in the video is equally useful to drivers.

VIDEO - Resource Road Orientation

VideoBritish Columbia has over 620,000 km of resource roads that have been built to access natural resources by industry. They are also used by the general public to take part in recreational activities. They are not maintained to the same standard as public highways, if they are maintained at all. Four wheel drive or ATV type recreational vehicles may be required to use them.

VIDEO - Two Way Left Turn Lanes

VideoTwo way left turn lanes are designed to reduce traffic congestion and rear-end collisions when turning left mid-block while saving the space otherwise required for a dedicated left-turn lane in either direction.

VIDEO - Texting and Driving

VideoThis video about distracted driving was broadcast by 60 Minutes Australia in 2013. Fast forward 8 years and look around you when you drive. Do you think that the message is getting through?

VIDEO - Why the Dutch Wait Less at Traffic Lights

VideoThe description of this video showing how traffic lights work in Holland explains that they are designed and timed to move the most traffic of all kinds, not the most motor vehicles.

VIDEO - How do Stop Lights Know to Turn Green?

VideoHave you ever watched a driver waiting in vain for the traffic light to turn green because they failed to stop properly at an intersection? In most parts of BC signals respond to inductive loops buried in the pavement to sense the presence of your vehicle. An understanding of how they work can prevent you from being stuck.

VIDEO - Living Radars

VideoThis is a video from SAAQ in Quebec produced for a speed and distracted driving awareness campaign in 2020. The speed display in the video is showing real time traffic speeds from a pole mounted radar unit at the filming location. It's a striking visual reminder of how fast we often drive through a school zone.

VIDEO - Who is in Control?

VideoThis video from the Dutch Safety Board poses a very interesting question: "Who is in Control?" With more and more Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) being incorporated into new vehicles this is a very important consideration. News of collisions happening when these systems fail is not new. This raises another important question: "Who is at Fault?"
