Here are some factors to consider when looking at B.C. heavy commercial truck collision statistics:
- Collision data collection is the responsibility of ICBC. ICBC focuses on broader collision data collected from both municipal roadways and the provincial highway network. This data includes all police and non-police attended collisions.
- B.C. Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure’s Collision Information System receives collision data from ICBC. When analyzing heavy truck collision data, this Collision Information System focuses on collisions on the provincial highway network that are attended by the police. Information collected by the police improves data collection consistency and reliability. This Collision Information System data works as a reliable ministry resource for statistics that represent CVSE influence on commercial vehicle safety.
