The B.C. Government is seeking public feedback on whether bad drivers should pay higher ICBC premiums so good drivers can pay less for their auto insurance.

A public comment period is now open on a plan to make drivers more accountable for their decisions and behaviour.

“Drivers have been saying for years that the system would be more fair if low-risk drivers paid less for their vehicle insurance, while high-risk drivers paid more,” said Attorney General David Eby.

“The question is: Who is a bad driver and how much more should they pay?”

The government is accepting public comment on its plan through an online survey, or by email or mail.
