ICBC - A Neighborhood Bully?
It started earlier this year when it was revealed that ICBC would be withholding drivers’ licenses until unpaid Translink fines we paid up.
Now don’t get me wrong, I’m not a fan of unpaid parking tickets.
But how is this ICBC’s business?
Last time I looked ICBC’s job was to provide auto insurance to British Columbians. Not to act as a debt collector for every government agency under the sun.
It’s quickly become apparent that government has identified ICBC’s monopoly position as the perfect tool to hold BC’s motorists to ransom.
Let’s not forget that in 1972 ICBC was created in order to provide auto insurance to British Columbians.
Because the government of the day felt that BCers weren’t getting treated fairly by the insurance behemoths that ran roughshod over the plains of BC.
But instead of serving motorists ICBC appears to be more interested in shaking them down. The muscle that gets sent around when someone hasn’t paid up.
Shouldn’t ICBC be focusing on serving its customers (honest people like you and me) rather than acting as the government’s enforcer.
I certainly think so.
But instead it looks like ICBC is going to continue to lean on the very people it’s supposed to serve.
