VICTORIA, B.C. – This weekend is Thanksgiving and ICBC is reminding British Columbians to use caution and keep safety in mind when travelling on the busy roads.

According to ICBC, the Thanksgiving long weekend has historically been one of the more dangerous long weekends on B.C. roads with an average of 2,200 crashes, nearly 700 people injured and four killed.

This holiday weekend, ICBC says if you plan to drink or consume recreational drugs, do not drive as it puts you at a higher risk of being involved in a collision, which could lead to serious injury or death. Also, remember to avoid distractions while driving, such as by not using your phone.
