Top 10 Crash Sites

ICBC has announced the Top 10 Crash Sites in the greater Vancouver area. My nemesis, the Pattullo Bridge rounds out the list while danger zones in Burnaby, Coquitlam, Delta and are all highlighted.

By highlighting high-crash locations, ICBC hopes to draw attention to the larger issues of high-risk driving behaviour and how driver behaviour impacts the cost of insurance. ICBC says there is a strong link between certain high-risk driving behaviours and crashes. [News1130]

I’ve made a Google Map of all locations and while putting this together I realized most are on either Hwy 1 or a bridge, which seem to be places people tend to speed. Please slow down and drive with caution – I don’t want to be putting up any more posts about the Bridge of Death… well unless they’re actually ever going to DO something about it…

    It seems unusual that the Pattullo ranks only number 10, considering the accidents that get reported on it.

    Or maybe it’s not the sheer number of accidents on the bridge, but the fact that they usually result in a fatality.
