VICTORIA, B.C. — The Insurance Corp. of B.C. (ICBC) has been urged by the B.C. Trucking Association (BCTA) to reduce the number of annual inspections from two, to one.
The change would bring the province in line with every other Canadian province and territory, with the exception of the Yukon. It would also reduce red tape, according to the BCTA.
In addition, the BCTA has also recommended ICBC introduce lifetime trailer plates.
While ICBC is considering implementing both suggestions, personnel cutbacks will make evaluating the recommendations a lengthy process. ICBC did, however, say it hopes to have considered both recommendations by the end of the year.
