ICBC Cautions Drivers While a Multiple Motor Vehicle Accident Injures 6 After a Lamborghini Collides with Oncoming Traffic.
As kids return to the classroom, and people go about their routines, ICBC asks drivers to be extra cautious and apply these safe driving tips. Tips include leaving your phone alone when driving and being mindful of your speed and surroundings.
RCMP are investigating what caused a severe, multiple-vehicle collision in Vancouver that involved a Lamborghini, Range Rover, and Toyota CUV. Six people were injured, including two who remain in serious condition.
What Vancouverites Needs to Know About COVID-Related Fines and Enforcement
More public-facing retailers and service providers across British Columbia are mandating that customers wear masks. At the same time, as of the end of September, BC Ferries will no longer allow passengers the option of staying in their vehicles on most routes.
“Parents [are] responsible for children’s fines” is the take-home message from Vancouver RCMP to parents of youth (under 18 years of age). As usual, the last weekend of summer was busy with grad camping trips and parties hosted by teens and sometimes involving a few parent chaperones. Local RCMP officers wish to remind parents that they could be subject to fines up to $2000 if they or their kids are involved in large gatherings that “violate public health orders.”
The last weekend of August was also busy for several local businesses and venues, some of which were issued fines for failing to comply with provincial health orders.
