Safe Driving on Long Weekends

Article Number: 
8

As another long weekend approaches our collective memory of the car accident statistics for the 2003 Canada Day long weekend dims. Lest forgetting this recent history dooms us to repeat it, here is a brief refresher: 9 killed and 24 injured. Of the 9 fatalities, 8 resulted from vehicles colliding where road conditions, weather and visibility were not reported as issues.

Picture a many-eyed creature with lots of antennae sticking out of a rotating head-like sphere. When you drive, this creature is your role model because to drive safely, you need to know what is going on around you at all times. To help compensate for our limited number of eyes, no antennae and fixed necks, car designers have given us rear and side mirrors and horns. In turn, driving experts have given us strategies for using these devices to maximum effect.

Watch Out for Summer Road Construction

Does summertime music from your car radio mesh well with a jackhammer beat? Could this be because jack hammering is such a common auditory background for summer driving? Summer is road construction season and summer 2003 is no exception. Check out www.city.vancouver.bc.ca and select the menu item “road construction" for an impressive list of all such current activities in the City of Vancouver.

Summer is the season for road trips. In planning their trip, travelers ponder when and where they will travel, where they will stay, what vehicle maintenance is required, how many hours of driving will be required each day, whether or not the driving can be shared, how much luggage each traveler can bring, and so on. Of summer road trips, some might say, borrowing from Yogi Berra—ninety percent of the trip is half planning.  

Look before Opening Your Car Door

Summer is finally here which means more cyclists on Vancouver streets—fair-weather cyclists often less experienced than the stalwarts who ride year-round. More carefree cyclists pedaling past more rows of parked cars: is this image idyllic or ominous for you? Whether you identify with the cyclist or with the driver about to exit one of the cars, you would be wise to have a twinge of foreboding.
