Duties and Rights of Bicyclists

Article Number: 
RoadRules Category: 

According to the Province newspaper, June is “Bike Month.”  From a review of bicycle-sympathetic web sites, a theme appears that “bicycles are the best transportation there is”. From this thought we go to safety issues. A bicycle/car altercation inevitably ends more favorably for the motorist than the bicyclist. Serious collisions will typically involve the bicyclist’s body being thrown over the hood and into the windshield, or onto the road surface, or both. Hea

The Effect of Graduated Licensing

Article Number: 
RoadRules Category:

Article Number: 
RoadRules Category:

Graduated Licensing

Article Number: 
RoadRules Category: 

New drivers in British Columbia are subject to the Graduated Licensing program. This program was introduced as a result of concerns about the statistic that one in five new divers is involved in a crash during the first two years of driving. Reportedly, age is not a factor, so this is not just a “young driver” problem.

What is a Tort Claim?

Article Number: 

A “tort” claim is what most people will refer to as an “ICBC claim”. It is a claim for compensation for injuries. However, an “ICBC claim” involves two separate but overlapping claims. One is the claim for Part 7 benefits, discussed last week. Those benefits are paid without reference to the issue of “who is to blame”.
