Winter Driving: Winterizing Your Vehicle

Article Number: 

Now is the season of winter driving, the season about which British Columbians are more discontented than other Canadians, according to a recent survey by Goodyear Canada. The actual term used was “nervous” to describe how 58% of British Columbians feel while driving on icy roads.

Drinking and Driving: Tempting Fate

Article Number: 
RoadRules Category: 

Last week, Road Rules reviewed the legal consequences of being caught for driving under the influence of alcohol. If you drink and drive, however, you are tempting fate to offer up the unthinkable. Consider the following set of possibilities ranging from “no problem!” to increasingly tragic consequences:

Stopping Drinking and Driving: Law Enforcement

Article Number: 

The main approach to stopping drinking and driving in British Columbia has been increased law enforcement and stiffer penalties including license suspensions. This deterrence-based approach has resulted in significant declines in the past 25 years in fatalities, injuries and crashes caused by impaired drivers. In the last two years, however these declines have leveled off and the number of fatalities has risen.   

Social Host Liability

Article Number: 

Most of our “Road Rules” articles address readers as users of the road whether as drivers, cyclists or pedestrians. This article is different. It addresses readers as users of their own homes. The topic of “social host liability” is about a potential development in the law that could find house party hosts liable for damages caused by their guests’ impaired driving.

The Nine Road Commandments

Article Number: 
RoadRules Category: 

In early May 2003, one of Canada’s national newspapers reported on the initiative being taken by Archbishop Stephen Fumio Hamao, the chief of the Vatican’s Council for Itinerants and Migrants, to make safe driving a “Christian” duty and to promote a “Christian” culture of the road. Whatever your particular religious beliefs may be, the holiday season seems an appropriate time to consider a spiritual imperative for road safety.
