Distracted driving kills. Leave the phone alone!

The BC government, ICBC and police have launched a distracted driving campaign with new advertising and increased police enforcement this month (September 2014).

On average, 88 people are killed each year in BC due to driver distractions, the second leading cause of car crash fatalities in BC.

A text or call is not worth risking your life over, or causing the death of someone else. Leave the phone alone!
