Notes

  1. Counts include incidents that occurred in parking lots or involved parked vehicles. Data also includes out of province crashes.
  2. GLP drivers who have taken an ICBC-approved course are defined as drivers issued Declaration of Completion forms for Class 7 and 8 before the crash date.
  3. ICBC implemented a new claims system. As a result, the way ICBC collects and reports crash data has changed. Data from 2013 or earlier may not be directly comparable to 2014 data and crime data has changed.
