VIDEO - Surviving the New "Drunk Driver"

video iconHere's a video about distracted driving with a different point of view: how to avoid them! DriveSafeRideSafe believes that all drivers need to be educated about the likelihood they will need to protect themselves from the mistakes of other drivers on the road.

VIDEO - Rethink Speed

video iconQuoted from the YouTube video page: Our speed is one of the few things we control on the roads. While speed doesn’t always cause crashes, it always determines the severity of a crash. This is because the speed we travel at creates a force and it’s our vehicle and our bodies that absorb this force in a crash. This means the faster we choose to travel, the more severe a crash will be (whether the crash is our fault or not).

VIDEO - Snowplow Safety

video iconFrom the video description: If you are travelling BC highways during the winter months please be prepared and be aware - drive to conditions and take your time to get where you’re going. Our maintenance contractors are out there clearing our highways and provincial roads to make it safer for those driving on them and so we are asking anyone who is on the road with a snow plow to please steer clear and let them clear the road. It is never safe to pass a snow plow on the right or weave between plows when they are clearing the road.

SoapboxI'm experimenting here, so bear with me please. Haven't found 'Bad Driver of the Week' or 'Videos' as a Topic headline, so I'll stick this here.

VIDEO - @TranBC on Using Roundabouts

video iconFrom @TranBC: For a variety of situations, such as a considerable volume of traffic making left hand turns at an intersection or a significant history of collisions, a roundabout is a preferred choice rather than traditional intersections. If you don't have a lot of experience using roundabouts, they can appear a little intimidating at first, but we've got a few tips to make things easier.

BC Bad Pedestrian of the Week

This one is a bit different as the pedestrian in the video is the subject misbehaving, not the driver. It does show a need to take into account clues from traffic around you as the driver behind me didn't visibly react to the pedestrian wandering into the lane again after I had slowed.

BC's Bad Driver of the Week - EW8989

Parking lots are a bit different. On one hand, they are private property but on the other the public is invited to use them so they qualify as a highway under the Motor Vehicle Act. This means that you must obey all the usual driving rules, including stopping at stop signs. This driver appears to feel that the bigger truck gets to go first, regardless of the stop sign.

B.C.'s Bad Driver of the Week 3

Here's a driver that is not paying attention. He stops for the red light, but when the left turn arrow comes on for his direction and the truck on his right turns right on red, he decides that it's time to go and drives through the red shining brightly above his lane. Good thing that the left turn driver on the far side of the intersection is paying attention!
