Vancouver Aiming For Crash Free Day

Vancouver is hoping to make May 15th a "crash-free" day, as part of a safe driving awareness campaign.
Each year in Vancouver more than 55,000 motor vehicle collisions occur, which breaks down to an average of approximately 150 collisions every day. In an effort to raise awareness about the importance of safe driving, Goodyear Canada is working with the Vancouver Police to encourage drivers in Vancouver to make May 15th a collision free day.
From Victoria Day until Thanksgiving Day weekend – a period health and safety experts call “trauma season” – there are more collisions than any other time during the year. Experts say the increase in collisions is largely attributed to driver fatigue, driver inattention, speed and impaired driving – all preventable situations that the campaign organizers hope to reduce.
