Interesting point.icbc made people take a road test every 2-5 years
Agreed.I really don't pay enough fees associated with driving
My Proposition:I think it would be a good idea if icbc made people take a road test every 2-5 years. It would be a hassle but i think it would save a lot of lives. Not to mention get the shitty drivers and riders off the streets.
icbc licensed them to begin with, and probably recently too. you don't have to be a good driver to pass the test.Agreed.
However, would you pay extra to remove, oh, say 25% of the dumbest and worst drivers and riders, from our roadways?
Less traffic, and the vehicles out there at least meet a higher standard of driving skills.
Might be worth it.......
Exactly our point!you don't have to be a good driver to pass the test.
won't happen. the worst drivers are the often ones who are overly cautious. the test is designed to weed out safe drivers from unsafe drivers, not good drivers. there is no way icbc can objectively test for good driving skills, only safe.Exactly our point!
Ensure only people whom are capable of the responsibilities of driving, properly trainied and rigorously tested, should be allowed the privilege of driving/riding.
Make the test more difficult to pass, with real life circumstances, and see the skill levels raise.
Probably needs to be augmented with hard and fast enforcement though.
I know it. A nice dream though. Unclogged roads. Knowing the motorists around you have a higher degree of skill, than most motorists now.won't happen.
Respectfully, I'll disagree. ICBC egages in safe driving and things like "zero crash month," to reduce claims.icbc wants to license people that avoid any and all kinds of traffic accidents at all costs so they can collect premiums rather than paying claims.
Totally - I noticed on recent trips to Washington/Oregon/Cali that there are signs stating it's illegal to drive in the left lane unless passing. And for the most part they seem to stick to it - makes things so much smoother.do it like in europe .. driving school is like military, also start enforcing keep to the right/pass on left rule that is already on the books
