Current Road Safety Campaign
Preventing auto crime
After a decade of consistent decline, auto crime is once again on the rise in B.C. According to police data, vehicle thefts increased by 31% and vehicle break-ins by 17% in 2014. Learn about the opportunities thieves look for, what ICBC’s doing, and what you can do to protect yourself from auto crime.

Distracted driving is the second leading cause of car crash fatalities – ahead of impaired driving – and is the leading cause of rear-end crashes which often result in injuries. Our campaign includes enhanced enforcement and education starting March 2.
Our education campaign involves television and radio advertising as well as proactive social media. Police will be increasing enforcement throughout the province, and community volunteers will be conducting “cell watch” deployments to remind drivers to leave the phone alone.
We can all do our part to make B.C. roads safer by leaving our phones alone and staying focused on driving. You can show your support by displaying a “not while driving” decal on your vehicle as a reminder to yourself and other drivers to leave the phone alone (available at any ICBC driver licensing office or participating Autoplan broker locations).
