" 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.

BUT THINK ABOUT IT !!

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 BOTTOM LINE HERE IS SIMPLE

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.
