Current Road Safety Campaigns 2019

May is Speed Awareness Month

When you slow down you see more of the road. Reducing your speed gives you more time to react.

Slow down and be realistic about travel times to reduce your risk of crashing and arrive at your destination safely.

Speeding increases your chances of crashing. ICBC, police and Speed Watch are urging drivers to slow down.


  • Be realistic about your travel time. If you’re going to be later than you expected, take a deep breath and accept the delay.
  • Slow down on wet roads, in bad weather conditions, or on uneven roads and increase your following distance to at least four seconds.
  • Don’t speed up as someone is trying to pass you. Help the other driver get back into your lane by slowing down and making room.
