As large increases were again recorded in practically all issuance under the " Motor-
vehicle Act," previous records were again surpassed, as will be noted from the comparative statement of issuance during the licence-years 1943 to 1950, given hereunder, the
most outstanding being an increase of 56.47 per cent in the new registrations of passenger
motor-vehicles. This large increase was reflected in a number of other items, such as
notices of transfer on used motor-vehicles being turned in on new motor-vehicles, etc.
Increases and decreases in connection with the issuance of licences and permits
during the 1950 licence-year, as compared to similar issuance during the 1949 licence-
year, were as follows:—

MAIL-ORDER ISSUANCE
As in the past, an extensive mail-order issuance was again carried out by the headquarters office at Victoria, where 37,532 items were issued by mail, an increase of 6,862
items or 22.4 per cent over last year's total of 30,670. Included in this total were 13,738
passenger motor-vehicle licences and 3,870 commercial motor-vehicle licences which were
issued to persons residing outside the Victoria area. It is necessary, therefore, to arrive
at a correct figure for motor-vehicle population in the Victoria area, that these mail-order
licences be deducted from the Victoria issuance as shown in the foregoing table, which
would then show 25,509 passenger and 8,061 commercial motor-vehicle licences issued
to residents in and around Victoria.
Licences issued by mail from the Victoria issuing office during 1950 were as

REVENUE
The amount collected during the licence-year 1950 from licences, permits, and fees
under the " Motor-vehicle Act," with the exception of fees for drivers' examinations
(which are used to defray the cost of such examinations), was $7,478,766.78. This total
again showed a sharp increase of $1,059,479.32, which was 16.5 per cent over the amount
so collected during the 1949 licence-year.
Of this amount, $5,437,217.09 (72.7 per cent) was collected through the offices of
this Branch as follows:—
Vancouver motor-licence office ,  $2,635,876.30
Victoria motor-licence office     1,319,758.37
New Westminster motor-licence office        761,227.37

Total  $5,437,217.09
The balance of $2,041,549.69 was collected through the various Government
Agencies throughout the Province and Police Detachments collecting and reporting
through such Agencies.
In addition, a total of $113,492 was also collected this year for drivers' examination
fees. This was an increase of $61,083 or 116.5 per cent over the amount collected last
year in this connection, and was due to the start of re-examinations of drivers who had not
been tested for a period of five years. These collections were made through stationary and
travelling examination units operating at or out of the following places:— REPORT OF SUPERINTENDENT OF MOTOR-VEHICLES,  1950

0.19 REPORT OF SUPERINTENDENT OF MOTOR-VEHICLES,  1950 MM 23
For the year 1950, 78,323 drivers attended for the driver's re-examination, of whom
65,132 were male and 13,191 were female. As a result of such re-examinations, it was
found necessary to place restrictions on 18,881 or 29 per cent on male drivers and 3,540
or 26.8 per cent on female drivers, and to suspend the drivers' licences of 251 or 0.38 per
cent of the male drivers and 62 or 0.47 per cent of the female drivers.
The following summary, segregated into age-groups, shows the results of these reexaminations, together with the reasons for the restrictions imposed and the reasons for
suspension of such licences:—  Summary of Drivers' Re-examinations, 1950

SAFETY RESPONSIBILITY
The steadily mounting total of motor-vehicle accidents and convictions during the
year, which was partly the result of the increased flow of traffic on our highways, was
reflected by the increased number of cases brought to a successful conclusion and the
large number of inquiries from the general public which were attended to during the
year 1950.
Although many large transportation companies have given proof of financial
responsibility by depositing bonds or obtaining certificates from the Superintendent of
Insurance as "self-insurers," the filing of British Columbia financial-responsibility
insurance certificates increased by 17.8 per cent over that of the previous year. The
total number of certificates filed amounted to 10,020, as compared with 8,503 last year,
an increase of 1,517. Owners' policy certificates and garage and sales-agency policy
certificates filed during the year totalled 6,307, an increase of 1,607 or 34.2 per cent
over the number so filed last year, and an increase of 14.2 per cent was registered in the
number of drivers' policy certificates filed, there being 1,217 filed this year, as compared
with 1,066 last year. There was a decrease of 241 or 8.8 per cent in the number of
owners' policy certificates for public and limited vehicles, there being 2,496 certificates
filed this year, as compared with 2,737 last year.
Out of a total of 13,216 British Columbia financial-responsibility certificates received
during the year, 3,196 or 24.2 per cent were rejected and returned to insurance companies
concerned as incorrect. The number of rejections is still far too high, but the steady
decrease in the number of incorrect certificates is encouraging, and it is felt that the
Division's approach to the companies in this regard is having the desired effect.
The number of British Columbia financial-responsibility insurance certificates which
were cancelled during the year amounted to 8,951. This was an increase of 1,528 or
20.6 per cent over that of 1949. Intimations have been received from companies who
have filed certificates that they intend to approach the Department with a view to having
a search made of existing certificates on file, and it is expected that such action may
result in a tremendous increase in the number of cancellations in 1951.

Financial-responsibility cards issued during the year to corporations who had filed
bonds, or who had been issued with a certificate from the Superintendent of Insurance
that they maintain sufficient funds to satisfy third-party liability claims, totalled 255.
Under existing legislation it is necessary to screen all new registrations of motor-
vehicles and transfers in ownership of motor-vehicles, as well as all applications for
original drivers' licences. In this connection approximately 409,500 individual checks
were made in 1950, as compared with 301,500 in 1949. This was an increase of
35.8 per cent in this particular part of the work over that of 1949.
During the year 5,152 drivers' licences and 4,327 motor-vehicle licences were
suspended under the financial-responsibility sections of the " Motor-vehicle Act." This
was an increase of 1,461 or 39.6 per cent in the number of drivers' licences suspended
and an increase of 1,519 or 54.1 per cent in the number of motor-vehicle licences
suspended, as compared with last year.
However, 4,035 drivers' licences and 3,035 motor-vehicle licences were reinstated
during the year upon compliance with the requirements of the financial-responsibility
sections of the Act or the bona fide sale of the motor-vehicles concerned to other persons.
This was an increase of 1,448 or 56 per cent in the number of drivers' licences reinstated
and an increase of 914 or 43.1 per cent in the number of motor-vehicle licences
reinstated in this connection, as compared with last year. A comparative statement of
the suspensions and reinstatements of drivers' licences and motor-vehicle licences under
the provisions of the financial-responsibility sections of the " Motor-vehicle Act " during
this year and last year is given in the following table:— MM 32

In addition to the suspensions made under the provisions of the financial-
responsibility sections of the " Motor-vehicle Act," it was also found necessary to
suspend 2,681 drivers' licences. This was an increase of 85.7 per cent over the number
so suspended during the corresponding period last year. Of these, 829 were as a result
of Court orders or recommendations received from Magistrates and the balance as
a result of being found unfit to drive or for failing to take and qualify in a driver's
examination when called upon to do so.
Particulars as to the reason for such suspensions, together with the time such licences
were suspended, is shown in the following statement:— REPORT OF SUPERINTENDENT OF MOTOR-VEHICLES,  1950

During 1950, 45 drivers' licences which had been obtained from persons who had
been committed to mental institutions were forwarded to this office, and 11 drivers'
licences so surrendered were subsequently returned upon the clearance of the holders.
There were also 662 persons released during the year from the requirement of
having to maintain proof of financial responsibility. Of these, 243 were released, as one
year had elapsed since the date of the motor-vehicle accident as a result of which they
were required to give such proof and they had not been named as defendant in an action
in connection with damages and had neither paid nor agreed to pay any sum for damages,
or as a result of judgment in an action for damages being given in their favour, and 419
were released by submitting the necessary proof that during a period of at least three
years immediately preceding their application for release they had not been convicted of
any offence which would bring them under the financial-responsibility legislation, that
they had no judgment in an action for damages as a result of a motor-vehicle accident
outstanding against them, and that they had not been involved in any motor-vehicle
accident.
At the beginning of the year 400 motor-vehicles were still impounded as a result of
being involved in a motor-vehicle accident, and during the year 1,548 were impounded
for this reason, making a total of 1,948. During the year 1,467 motor-vehicles were
released from impoundment, leaving 481 motor-vehicles still impounded on December
31st, 1950. The 1,467 motor-vehicles were released from impoundment under the following circumstances:—
{a) By the owners giving security sufficient to satisfy any judgment that might
thereafter be recovered against them as a result of the accident and filing
proof of financial responsibility for future operation, 56.
{b) By the owners producing satisfactory proof that all claims for damages
resulting from the accident had been satisfied and filing proof of financial
responsibility for future operation, 595.
(c)   By the production of a motor-vehicle liability-insurance card or a financial-
responsibility card in respect to the motor-vehicle which was in full force
at the time of the accident, 77.
{d) By satisfactory proof being given that the only damage resulting from the
accident was to the person or property of the owner or the driver, 70.
(e)   By satisfactory proof being given that, at the time of the accident, the
motor-vehicle was a stolen motor-vehicle, 1.
(/)  By satisfactory proof being given that the motor-vehicle impounded was
so damaged that it would be impractical to repair it so that it could be
driven on a highway, 57.
(g)   By satisfactory proof being given that the driver, owner, or other person
in charge of the motor-vehicle was the holder of a valid existing motor-
vehicle liability policy in full force at the time of the accident, 191.
{h) By the owner or driver of the motor-vehicle producing satisfactory proof
of satisfaction of claims for damages (non-residents), 59.
(i)  By warrant of execution, 1.
(/')  By judgment in action for damages having been given in favour of the
owner of the impounded motor-vehicle, 6.
{k) On expiration of six months after accident and no action for damages
taken against owner of impounded motor-vehicle, 339.
(/)   By satisfactory proof being given that, at the time of the accident, the
motor-vehicle was properly parked, 15.
MOTOR-VEHICLE ACCIDENTS
While during 1950 the total number of motor-vehicles licensed in the Province
increased 17.9 per cent, I am pleased to be able to report that there was a decrease of REPORT OF SUPERINTENDENT OF MOTOR-VEHICLES,  1950 MM 37
1,032 or 5.4 per cent in the total number of motor-vehicle accidents reported. However,
5,720 persons received non-fatal personal injuries this year, as compared with 5,194 last
year, an increase of 526 or 10.1 per cent, but there was a decrease of 9 or 4.9 per cent in
the number of persons who lost their lives in motor-vehicle accidents, there being 175
such persons, as compared with 184 last year. Property damage caused in reportable
motor-vehicle accidents this year amounted to $4,266,784.40, an increase of $496,963.11
or 13.1 per cent over the amount caused last year. Part of this large increase could again
be attributed to the rising cost of replacements and repairs. There were 4,051 motor-
vehicle accidents resulting in personal injury this year, as compared with 3,633 last year,
and it will be noted that fatal motor-vehicle accidents totalled 156, which was the same
as last year.
During the period of the past ten years, as given in the summary in Appendix I,
it will be noted that 107,236 accidents have occurred in the Province, resulting in
1,491 fatalities, 37,927 persons receiving non-fatal injuries and property damage of
$18,155,818.51, these accidents involving 179,763 motor-vehicles.
This year 12,792 or 70.9 per cent of all motor-vehicle accidents resulted from collision between motor-vehicles. This is a decrease in this type of accident of 6.3 per cent
under last year, when 71.6 per cent of the motor-vehicle accidents resulted from thjs
cause. As a result of this type of accident, 2,653 persons were injured and 19 persons
died, this being 46.4 per cent of the persons receiving non-fatal injuries and 10.8 per cent
of the persons receiving fatal injuries in motor-vehicle accidents.
Again this year the next largest group was the non-collision accidents, which
amounted to 1,890 or 10.5 per cent of the total accidents. This type of accident resulted
in 1,032 persons receiving non-fatal injuries and 55 persons losing their lives, which was
18 per cent of the total number of persons injured and 31.4 per cent of the total fatalities.
This was a decrease of 7.7 per cent in the number of fatalities in this type of accident, as
compared to last year, when 39.1 per cent of the fatalities occurred from this source.
Motor-vehicles striking fixed objects was the third largest group, totalling 1,340 or
7.5 per cent of the total accidents, and caused non-fatal injuries to 475 or 8.3 per cent of
the persons receiving such injuries and 14 or 8 per cent of the fatalities. This type of
accident shows an increase in the number of persons injured and killed this year as compared with last year, when 397 persons were injured and 11 persons killed.
Unfortunately, there was an increase this year in the number of accidents involving
pedestrians, there being 991, as compared to 949 such accidents last year, resulting in
987 persons being injured, as compared to 939 last year, and 66 pedestrians being killed,
as compared to 48 during 1949, an increase in the number of fatalities of 37.5 per cent.
Again there was no change in the peak hours of motor-vehicle accidents, which still
remain from 4 to 6 p.m., 3,081 or 17 per cent of the accidents taking place at this time,
and again most accidents occurred on a Saturday, a total of 3,927 occurring on that day,
resulting in 21.8 per cent of the total accidents.
Of the 31,223 motor-vehicles involved in reportable motor-vehicle accidents this
year, 22,504 or 72 per cent were private passenger-type motor-vehicles, 3,991 or 12.8
per cent were trucks, 2,643 or 8.5 per cent were deliveries, and 831 or 2.7 per cent were
taxis. The percentage increase in the number of private passenger-type motor-vehicles
again rose 1.5 per cent; the trucks showed a percentage increase of 5 per cent, whereas
the deliveries and taxis showed a slight decrease.
Private passenger-type motor-vehicles were involved in 59.9 per cent of the fatal
accidents, showing an increase of 0.7 per cent over last year; 63.6 per cent of the accidents resulted in non-fatal injuries, a decrease of 5.1 per cent under last year, and 72.2
per cent of the accidents resulted in property damage only, an increase of 1.2 per cent
over last year. Trucks were involved in 20.9 per cent of the fatal accidents, a decrease
of 2.3 per cent, which still shows a downward trend; 10.7 per cent of the accidents
resulted in non-fatal injuries, this being an increase of 1.5 per cent over last year, and MM 38 BRITISH COLUMBIA
13.2 per cent of the accidents resulted in property damage only, an increase of 0.4 per
cent over last year. Deliveries were involved in 7.7 per cent of the fatal accidents, a
decrease of 1.3 per cent under last year; 7.2 per cent of the accidents resulted in non-fatal
injuries, a decrease of 2.9 per cent under last year, and 8.8 per cent of the accidents
resulted in property damage only, a decrease of 0.9 per cent under last year. Taxis were
involved in 1.1 per cent of the fatal accidents, an increase of 0.6 per cent over last year;
2.3 per cent of the accidents resulted in non-fatal injuries, a decrease of 0.3 per cent under
last year, and 2.7 per cent of the accidents resulting in property damage only, a decrease
of 0.3 per cent under last year.
The total number of accidents occurring at railroad crossings dropped from 80 last
year to 53 this year, again the majority taking place at unguarded crossings, the total in
this category being 46 as compared with 67 last year. There were no fatal accidents of
this type this year, as compared to 5 last year; however, personal injuries totalled 17, as
compared with 19 last year, and accidents resulting in property damage only totalled 36,
compared with 56 at railroad crossings last year.
Of the 31,223 motor-vehicle drivers involved in accidents, 94.1 per cent were male
drivers. Drivers under 25 years of age comprised 24 per cent of the drivers involved in
motor-vehicle accidents, and this group was involved in accidents which caused 28 per
cent of the fatalities, 26.4 per cent of the non-fatal injuries, and 23.5 per cent of the
property damage. The largest age-group of the drivers involved were those between 25
and 40 years of age, this group being involved in 45.6 per cent of the total accidents,
resulting in 41.8 per cent of the fatalities, 43.8 per cent of the non-fatal injuries, and 46
per cent of the property damage.
Of the drivers involved in accidents, 77.7 per cent had driving experience of five
years and over, and these were involved in accidents causing 53.8 per cent of the fatalities,
75 per cent of the personal injuries, and 78.6 per cent of the property damage. It will be
noted, however, that 2.9 per cent of the drivers involved had a driving experience of not
more than twelve months, and these drivers were involved in accidents resulting in 4.9
per cent of the fatalities; those drivers having less than three months' experience being in
accidents resulted in 2.2 per cent of the fatalities.
Those apparently in a normal condition comprised 89 per cent of the drivers involved
in accidents, while 0.3 per cent were intoxicated, and accidents involving the latter group
resulted in 2.2 per cent of the fatalities. Last year there were only 24 drivers who did
not have a driver's licence who were involved in accidents in which there was 1 fatality
and 5 non-fatal injuries; however, this year there were 233 unlicensed drivers involved in
accidents, resulting in 4 fatalities and 69 non-fatal injuries.
In those accidents in which the action of the driver contributed to the accident, the
largest group, 1,487, were those who drove off the highway, causing 22 fatalities and 454
non-fatal injuries. The next largest group, 1,176, were those who left their cars standing
in the roadway, which resulted in 1 fatality and 183 non-fatal injuries.
A sharp increase is noted in the number of pedestrians killed this year, totalling 66,
as compared to 47 last year. Those pedestrians receiving non-fatal injuries numbered
997, as compared to 939 last year. Of the pedestrians receiving fatal injuries, 8 were
under 15, as compared to 11 last year, but a sharp increase was registered in the age-
group of 65 years and over, in which 34 were killed this year, as compared to 9 last year.
Of those who lost their lives or received non-fatal injuries from motor-vehicle
accidents, the largest group was again passengers, of whom 49 received fatal injuries and
2,801 non-fatal injuries. Drivers were the second largest group, of whom 41 received
fatal injuries and 1,467 non-fatal injuries.
Again this year the percentage of fatalities during darkness in comparison to the
number of accidents was more than double the fatalities occurring from accidents taking
place during daylight hours, there being 9,741 accidents in daylight resulting is 59 fatalities, whereas 65 people were killed in 4,229 accidents occurring during darkness. REPORT OF SUPERINTENDENT OF MOTOR-VEHICLES,  1950
MM 39
Reportable motor-vehicle accidents occurring in cities in the Province this year
totalled 10,712, as compared to 11,673 last year. While these accidents showed a
decrease in number, they were more serious, resulting in 64 persons receiving fatal
injuries, an increase of 12.2 per cent over last year; 2,895 persons received non-fatal
injuries, an increase of 9 per cent over last year, and property damage amounted to
$1,993,693.33, as compared to $1,845,832.27 last year.
In district municipalities there were 3,098 reportable motor-vehicle accidents this
year, as compared to 3,254 last year, a decrease of 156. This was 17.2 per cent of the
total accidents in the Province, which was a slight gain of 0.2 per cent over last year.
These accidents in the district municipalities resulted in 32 persons receiving fatal injuries,
as compared to 43 last year, a decrease of 11; 1,294 persons received non-fatal injuries,
as compared to 1,086 last year, an increase of 208; and $830,505.45 property damage
was caused, as compared to $753,137.62 last year.
An increase was again recorded in the number of motor-vehicle accidents taking
place in village municipalities and unorganized districts in the Province, there being 4,219
accidents in these areas, as compared to 4,134 last year, which was 23.4 per cent of the
total accidents in the Province, an increase of 1.8 per cent. These accidents resulted in
79 persons being fatally injured, as compared to 84 last year, 1,531 persons receiving
non-fatal injuries, as compared to 1,452 last year, and property damage of $1,442,585.62
being caused, as compared to $1,170,851.40 last year.
Statements giving details according to location of motor-vehicle accidents occurring
this year and last year are given in Appendices II, III, and IV, while a statistical summary
of motor-vehicle accidents occurring throughout the Province during this year is given in
Appendix V. Brief particulars of motor-vehicle accidents occurring during the calendar
years 1947 to 1950, inclusive, are as follows:—

Registrations under the "Conditional Sales Act" and "Bills of Sale Act" again
show a sharp increase this year of 17,371 and 929 respectively. In addition, the total
revenue for law stamps used was $115,361.50, which was "an increase of $61,361 over
last year; however, part of this may be attributed to the fact that the 1950 session of the
Legislature increased the fees under the "Conditional Sales Act" from $1 to $2.
It will also be noted that the number of motor-vehicle files marked under the
"Companies Act" and "Co-operative Associations Act" have been reduced to nil in
each case. This change again is a result of an amendment of the last session of the Legislature, which required the documents submitted for filing at this office under the two Acts
concerned must mention specific motor-vehicles, whereas the previous legislation required
us to accept documents which dealt with present and future vehicles concerned. MM 40
BRITISH COLUMBIA
Perhaps under this heading it could also be mentioned the inauguration of the teletype service to Vancouver to provide an efficient method of handling searches for the
Lower Mainland area. The use of this service is gradually increasing, and it is an
important factor in an effort to cope with the number of searches in the future.
For purposes of comparison, the number of registrations and releases filed, as well
as the number of searches made and revenue collected under the above-mentioned Acts,
during this year and last year, are given in the following summary;.—

SCHOOL BUSES
During the year there were 510 school-bus permits issued for the purpose of carrying
school-children to and from school, this being an increase of 16.13 per cent over the
number of school-bus permits issued last year.
From January 1st, 1950, to August 15th, 1950, the British Columbia Police
inspected 215 school buses, and found 24 cases where brakes were defective and 65 cases
where steering was defective. In all instances these defects were immediately remedied.
On August 15th, 1950, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police took over the duties of the
British Columbia Police, and from August 16th, 1950, to December 31st, 1950, the Royal
Canadian Mounted Police inspected 201 school buses, and found 49 cases where steering
was defective and 22 cases where brakes were defective. These defects were also remedied immediately.
During the year the Mechanical Inspectors of the Motor Carrier Branch carried out
77 inspections, and, found 12 cases in which the steering was defective and 8 cases in
which brakes were defective.   In all instances these defects were corrected.
There were 133 new school buses put into operation for the transportation of schoolchildren during the year, an increase of 53 or 66% per cent over the number of new pieces
of equipment put into operation last year.
School buses were involved in 38 accidents this year, resulting in property damage
amounting to $9,860.06 and 3 persons being injured. REPORT OF SUPERINTENDENT OF MOTOR-VEHICLES,  1950

STAFF
Again due to the heavy increase in volume of work, it was necessary to increase the
staff, and for this purpose nineteen employees were added.

SURVEY
In accordance with the policy of the Government, to institute an efficient business
procedure in the various departments for the handling of Government business, the well-
known firm of Stevenson & Kellogg Limited, Management Engineers, was instructed to
make a survey of the various departments of the Government.
A thorough study of the organization and administration of this Branch was carried
out by their experts during the latter part of 1949 and the beginning of 1950, and a very
thorough report as to their findings was submitted on January 26th, 1950. Such report
indicated that this Branch covers a more comprehensive range of activities and provides
broader information and service to the public than is the case in other corresponding
branches in other Provinces and compares very favourably with similar bodies in the
various States in the United States.
However, to improve its operation further, certain changes in legislation and procedure were recommended, the most important changes being a five-year driver's licence
and an aluminium semi-permanent motor-vehicle licence-plate which would be validated
yearly by a substantial metal tab, the release of the Branch from the requirements of
legislation requiring ledger entry of encumbrances against motor-vehicles, as well as
release from the requirements of the " Public Documents Disposal Act" requiring the
keeping of all documents for a period of at least ten years.
Recommendations as contained in such report are being implemented in accordance
with your instructions in this connection. MM 42 BRITISH COLUMBIA
ACCOMMODATION
The available space allotted to this Branch in the building which we at present
occupy together with two other branches is very overcrowded, and being distributed on
three floors creates a most inefficient condition, resulting in a considerable loss of time
on the part of the staff as well as poor working conditions.
This situation, owing to the sharp increase in the work of the Branch, will deteriorate
rapidly, and it is most essential that it be remedied as soon as possible.
CONCLUSION
In conclusion, I would like to take this opportunity of expressing my appreciation
to the members of the Department and to the various police departments for the splendid
co-operation which has been received, as well as to the personnel of this Branch for the
way in which they have carried out their duties during the year.
I have the honour to be,
Sir,
Your obedient servant,
GEO. A. HOOD,
Superintendent of Motor-vehicles. REPORT OF SUPERINTENDENT OF MOTOR-VEHICLES,  1950             MM 43
