Changes to ICBC premiums would see bad drivers pay more

David Eby expected to announce changes to ICBC rates

"These are progressive changes that will ensure that those with clean driving records will be paying less, while people who cause crashes will generally be paying more", he said.

David Eby, Attorney General, said the submission ICBC is making to the BC Utilities Commission (BCUC) would include revenue-neutral proposals aimed at levelling that playing field.

"We want to modernize ICBC so that British Columbians pay according to their crash history, driving records and level of risk, and take responsibility for their driving habits".

"We hope and are advised that this legislation might get ICBC back in the black, which means that the savings are in the neighbourhood of $1 billion", Eby said.

"Right now, the system is broken". Five per cent of those deemed at an increased risk of causing a crash will pay between $50 and $100 more while 17 per cent will see their premiums rise by at least $100.

Alas for Claude Puel's men, they wouldn't nab an equaliser, with United getting their campaign underway with all three points. Leicester have spent the past few weeks battling United, who tried to sign center-back Harry Maguire after the World Cup .


Wilkinson said the government should take a look at what's working in those other jurisdictions and implement those best practices to help lower insurance rates and provide better, fairer services to British Columbians.

If approved, premiums would be calculated based on years of driving experience, number of at-fault crashes for all drivers using the vehicle, rate class (how the vehicle is used) and territory (where the driver lives), among other things. The remaining third will see their premiums increase.

"The changes we are proposing are the most significant updates to how ICBC's basic insurance premiums are set in more than 30 years", said ICBC's Board Chair Joy MacPhail.

Inexperienced and high-risk drivers would pay more for their vehicle insurance in British Columbia under proposed changes to modernize the province's Crown auto insurance corporation.

An increase to the Driver Penalty Point (DPP) and Driver Risk Premium (DRP) programs of 20% in fall 2018 and 20% in fall 2019, as previously announced.

After the 36-hole cut is made, the third round will be played in threesomes going off both the first and 10th tees. Said Woodland: "I have a lot of friends out here, a lot of college teammates, a lot of people from college".


The government says if the new measures were enacted today, two-thirds of drivers would pay less.

Most customers will fully transition to their new basic premium within three years under the proposed changes, the Ministry of Attorney General stated. Subject to approval, the changes would come into effect September 2019.

Insurance premiums will also factor in where you live and the traffic density, population growth and changes in the urban infrastructure.

The changes would include insurance discounts for drivers with up to 40 years of driving experience and move to a driver-based model, so at-fault crashes are tied to the driver and not the vehicle owner.

The corporation would forgive one at-fault crash for customers with 20 years of driving experience.
