Understanding driver distraction and causes

The most accepted definition of distracted driving is a diversion that temporarily takes the driver's attention away from driving, such as a task, event, person or object. These diversions reduce the driver's awareness, performance and decision-making skills, increasing the risk of traffic collisions. Motorists in British Columbia might not be aware of the causes of distracted driving.

Drunk driving statistical facts affecting British Columbia

A large percentage of residents of British Columbia and across the nation consider drunk driving to be a major concern, according to an annual study by The Road Safety Monitor. Although the number of people who died in alcohol-related car accidents was steadily declining since 2006, the number arose to 744 fatalities in 2010. These fatalities represent about a third of all traffic accidents in Canada, which is a slight decrease from several years prior to 2010.
