BC Bad Driver of the Week 4

This incident takes place in the northbound lanes of Highway 19 at Northfield Road in Nanaimo. The black pickup approaches in the right turn lane appearing to be turning right. Switching to the front camera view reveals that the pickup driver has decided not to wait with everyone else at the red light and slide through on the right shoulder between waiting traffic and the traffic islands.

BC Bad Driver of the Week - Left Turn Into Wrong Lane

I almost hesitate labelling this one Bad Driver of the Week because I know how easy this is to do if you are not paying attention. I did this once at a T intersection where there was a particularly wide median that made either direction look like two different roads to me. However, the driver of the gray car at the middle left approaches the intersection on a green light intending to turn left.

VIDEO - Double Crunch

video iconThis video of a multiple vehicle collision was contributed by the driver in the middle. He was stopped waiting to turn left with his wheels turned to the left in anticipation. The driver of pickup following behind apparently fails to notice the left turn driver slow and stop in front of him, resulting in the first collision. The second collision results because the left turn driver has failed to keep his wheels pointed straight ahead while he waited for oncoming traffic to clear. Being hit from behind pushed the vehicle into the path of an oncoming truck resulting in a second collision.

VIDEO - Strings: Parental Role Modelling

VIDEO - How to Clean Your Windshield

video iconMy windshield seems to have two visible areas, the one swept by the wipers and all the rest. You can clearly see them when you look across it at an angle. I've never been able to really clean the glass so that it is the same overall. I found this video and it seems to be the OCD Guide to Cleaning Glass, but I want to give it a try. Being able to see well, especially in bad weather, is critical to safe driving.

BC Bad Driver of the Week - 224MLD

Here's something that you see fairly frequently at stop signs. The front driver stops correctly at the marked stop line and proceeds when safe. The second driver simply follows along without making a second stop in the proper position.

VIDEO - Change Your Mind About Speeding

video iconThis is an anti-speeding television advertisement from Australia that debuted in 2002. It is my favourite anti-speeding video and puts a very different face on the consequences of a crash when exceeding the speed limit by only 5 km/h. For all of you who don't hestitate to travel at 10 over because the police don't bother you this may be a good indication that it isn't the police that you need to worry about.

BC Bad Driver of the Week 3

This driver cannot safely turn left onto a busy highway so rather than wait he turns into the oncoming left turn lane and then merges right. Compounding the problem is that virtually all traffic on the highway fails to slow to the posted 60 km/h limit, some not slowing from the previous 90 km/h limit at all.

VIDEO - Run Off The Road Crash Prevention

video iconIt's unfortunate that this video from the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety is a bit difficult to watch due to the sound not being synchronized with the picture. Otherwise, it contains good information about the prevention of run off the road crashes resulting from distracted driving.
