Crashes double from Oct to Dec says BC safety group

RICHMOND, BC - The Winter Driving Safety Alliance (WDSA) is urging drivers in British Columbia and everywhere to drive according to the weather conditions and go slow on the roads as Fall transitions into Winter. The group made up of industry insiders in that province, including the Government of B.C., the Insurance Corporation of B.C., and WorkSafeBC, says the number of police-attended collisions due to driving too fast for the weather conditions doubles each year in December, compared with October from the same year.
