" I hit a patch of ice and lost control of my car"

" It's not my fault! There was nothing I could do?"

Drivers in Vancouver say these types of things all the time.


Before that driver left their house or left work - did they have access to a radio, t.v., internet??

Didn't they have multiple ways of finding out weather and road conditions were like before they got behind the wheel??

Heck, they probably had a radio in their car.

So what excuse do they have for not being aware of weather and road conditions?

And why should a driver be surprised when they encounter slippery road conditions if it's cold out?


The drivers of vehicles travelling on the roads of the Great Vancouver area have a duty to exercise a reasonable degree of caution.

That means they need to drive with prevailing weather and road conditions in mind.

Were you involved in a car accident where weather and road conditions are an issue?

Has ICBC told you that weather and road conditions are to blame for your accident - NOT the motorist who hit you?

GIve me a call. We'll chat.
