Speeding

Ask for Electronic Stability Control

Article Number: 
250
RoadRules Category: 

In “Traffic Safety” (Michigan: Science Serving Society, 2004) Leonard Evans contends, “the most important element in…safety…is driver behaviour.” He argues that, in America, the intense focus on automotive engineering initiated in the late 60s and early 70s (especially) by Ralph Nader convinced “the US media, government, and public that deaths in traffic were mainly due to unsafe and defective vehicles” and ultimately “contributed to the precipitous decline in US

In Control With Cruise Control?

Article Number: 
226

Driving at a safe speed within the posted limit is one of the most important driving behaviours effecting risk: a 1% increase in speed reportedly increases fatality risk by between 4% and 12%. Cruise control systems are designed to assist with maintaining consistent speed. Used in appropriate conditions, they enable drivers to focus more attention on the surrounding traffic flow and they provide the assurance that the legal speed limits will be followed.

Article Number:

Head-on Collisions

Article Number: 
85

On December 21st, two men (a 71-year-old and a 64-year-old) and a 13-year-old girl were killed when the mini-van in which the men were driving westbound reportedly strayed into the eastbound lanes of Highway 1 (about 20 kilometers east of Golden in the Kicking Horse Pass section of the highway) and was “T-boned” by the vehicle in which the 13-year-old girl was a back-seat passenger. The driver and two other passengers in the eastbound car sustained serious injuries.

Safe Winter Driving and Speed Control

Article Number: 
84

Winter conditions have tested lower mainland and southern Vancouver and Gulf Island drivers this week. The results have been predictable—a huge increase in minor accidents and at least two reported fatal accidents. One of the fatal accidents appears to have been speed-related as well as weather-related, with a Ford Mustang reportedly traveling at over 200 km/hr into a utility pole.
