March is Distracted Driving Awareness Month

ICBC LogoMarch is distracted driving month in British Columbia and ICBC would like to remind you to give your complete attention to the driving task. Police will reinforce this message by focusing enforcement action on those drivers who fail to heed this advice. Even if you're not using your phone, you may still be distracted. Any diversion of your attention away from the safe operation of your vehicle, like chatting with passengers, eating or drinking, or adjusting radio or vehicle settings, can contribute to distracted and inattentive driving.
