RICHMOND, B.C. – As the Insurance Corp. of B.C. (ICBC) continues to re-evaluate its role as an insurance provider, the City of Richmond is lobbying the corporation to continue promoting road safety.

The city is trying to convince ICBC that the $1.1 million annually spent on local traffic safety programs is well worth the investment.

“I guess they’re getting out of the programs they consider non-essential,” voiced concerned city spokesman, Ted Townsend. ICBC is reluctant to speculate on the future of programs such as the Road Safety Improvement Program, which helps fund traffic safety audits and studies and infrastructure improvements.

“At the moment, ICBC is committed to its road safety partnerships,” says ICBC’s Hal Wake. “How this will be affected by the various reviews, remains to be seen.” –
