Initiative to Prevent Distracted Driving

Distracted driving has become the primary cause of motor vehicle accidents and fatalities in British Columbia. The BC Coalition to End Distracted Driving has launched Distracted Driving Kills, encouraging British Columbians to act responsibly when driving by putting their phones away, keeping their hands on the steering wheel, and being “present” while driving.

From 2010-2014, an average of 81 British Columbia fatalities per year were attributed to distracted driving. The Distracted Driving Kills website provides a number of resources aimed at preventing distracted driving, including:

  • A forum to share stories about the impacts caused by distracted driving;
  • Distracted driving statistics and videos; and,
  • Links to social media, where showcased stories can be liked and shared.

Local governments interested in receiving additional information about this campaign may contact Tim Logan, Campaign Coordinator.
