Driving can be risky. In fact, occupational motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of traumatic deaths in British Columbia. On average, 23 workers are killed in crashes each year. Between 2009 and 2013 the cost of claims to WorkSafeBC stemming from car crashes involving workers was $247 million.
