BC Day Travel - Tips From ICBC

ICBC LogoLong weekends mean more vehicles – and crashes – on B.C. roads. On average, three people are killed and 560 injured in crashes over the B.C. Day long weekend every year. In a new ICBC survey, 66% of respondents stated they have already taken or will be taking a road trip this summer. Nearly half of those planning a road trip (45%) stated they’ll be driving more than they did last summer. We’re sharing important safety tips for drivers to help keep our roads safe this long weekend.

Staying Cool In the Heat

Oceanside Health and Wellness Network LogoContinued high temperatures put many vulnerable populations at risk of heat-related illnesses, including the elderly, infants and young children, pregnant women, people with chronic illness and people experiencing homelessness. Residents are encouraged to check on neighbours and loved ones who may be unable to leave their homes or whose judgement may be impaired.

Never Loan Your Vehicle to Anyone

DriveSmartBC LogoCould you possibly advise us on how best to handle international visitors using our vehicle? We are traveling to Europe this summer and friends from there will be using our car (two different families at two different times). I would like to ensure that we are adequately covered in the event that they should be involved in any kind of motor vehicle accident in our car. I also wonder if they can take our vehicle into the US?
