Whether you’re heading out for a weekend getaway or staying local this Victoria Day long weekend, ICBC and police are asking you to plan ahead for increased traffic volumes so you’re not tempted to rush to your destination.Tailgating, failing to yield or speeding may seem harmless, but high-risk driving behaviours contribute to almost half of all police-reported casualty crashes in B.C. And every year over the Victoria Day long weekend, on average, three people are killed and 500 are injured in 1,700 crashes in BC.
