 PROVINCE OF BRITISH COLUMBIA
DEPARTMENT OF THE ATTORNEY-GENERAL
ANNUAL REPORT
of the
MOTOR-VEHICLE
BRANCH
FOR THE YEAR
1951
VICTORIA, B.C.
Printed by Don McDiarmid, Printer to the Queen's Most Excellent Majesty
1953 ( ■ To His Honour Clarence Wallace, C.B.E.,
Lieutenant-Governor of the Province of British Columbia.
May it please Your Honour :
The undersigned has the honour to present the Annual Report of the Motor-vehicle
Branch for the year 1951.
R. W. BONNER,
A ttorney-General.
A ttorney-General's Department,
Victoria, B.C., January, 1953.  Report of the Superintendent of Motor-vehicles, 1951
The Honourable Robert W. Bonner, Q.C., B.A., LL.B.,
Attorney-General, Victoria, B.C.
Sir,—I have the honour to submit hereunder the Annual Report for the year 1951
on behalf of Mr. George A. Hood, Superintendent of Motor-vehicles, whose untimely
resignation due to ill-health made it impossible for him to submit this Report.
For the first time since 1948 a decrease was recorded in passenger motor-vehicle
new registrations, which was no doubt due to the large back-log of new-car orders being
caught up during the 1950 licence-year. Other than this, together with several incidental
items, the general trend was a continued increase in passenger and commercial motor-
vehicle issuance, trailers, motor-dealers, transfers, etc.
A comparison is set out hereunder showing these increases and decreases in connection with the issuance of licences, permits, etc., during the 1951 licence-year as compared
to similar issuance during the 1950 licence-year.

licensed in this Province, as compared to 287,273 during the 1951 licence-year, a gain
of 21,570 or 8.1 percent. Of this total, 27,616 were passenger new registrations, 11,733
were commercial new registrations; however, included in these new registrations were
4,976 used private passenger-type and 1,298 used commercial-type motor-vehicles which
had been licensed in other places and brought into this Province for use here. The
balance, 22,640 passenger and 10,435 commercial motor-vehicles, were new vehicles

It will be noted in the above statement that drivers' licences have not been included
for the 1951 licence-year. A true comparison will no longer be maintained as the
issuance of a five-year driver's licence was commenced on January 2nd, 1951, which
required all holders of drivers' licences to renew their drivers' licence during the 1951
licence-year. Over this period there were 23,797 original, 287,307 renewal five-year
licences, and 3,962 duplicates issued.
Minors' drivers' licences were issued, starting on January 2nd, 1951, to expire on
the applicant's twenty-first birthdate. During the 1951 year there were 9,060 original,
15,214 renewal, and 840 duplicate minors' drivers' licences issued, making a total of
335,378 drivers' licences issued for the 1951 licence-year.
DISTRIBUTION OF MOTOR-VEHICLES
Not a great deal of change has taken place in the distribution of motor-vehicles
throughout the Province, other than Prince Rupert issuance moving ahead of Salmon
Arm and Oliver. Other than this, there were only small changes in the list of issuing
offices over last year. REPORT OF SUPERINTENDENT OF MOTOR-VEHICLES, 1951 AA 9

MAIL-ORDER ISSUANCE
Again a large mail-order issuance was carried out by the headquarters office at
Victoria, where 39,151 items were issued by mail, an increase of 1,619 items over last
year's total of 37,532. Included in this total were 12,422 passenger motor-vehicle licences
and 4,985 commercial motor-vehicle licences which were issued to persons residing outside the Victoria area. To arrive at the correct figure for motor-vehicle population in the
Victoria area, it is therefore necessary to deduct these mail-order licences from the Victoria
issuance as shown in the foregoing table, which would then show 27,833 passenger and
8,062 commercial motor-vehicle licences issued to residents in and around Victoria. AA 10

Licences issued by mail from the Victoria issuing office during 1951 were as

REVENUE
The amount collected during the licence-year 1951 for 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 $9,394,599.83. This
total again showed a large increase of $1,915,833.05, which was 25.6 per cent over the
amount so collected during the 1950 licence-year. This increase was directly attributable
to the issuance of a five-year driver's licence. The increase in this connection was
$1,370,286.25 over revenue collected for drivers' licences during last year. A sharp
decrease in revenue under drivers' licences can therefore be expected for the next four
years.
Of this amount, $7,146,789.60 or 76 per cent was collected through the offices of
this Branch, as follows:—
Vancouver Motor Licence Office  $3,309,775.34
Victoria Motor Licence Office     1,575,501.59
New Westminster Motor Licence Office     1,236,584.17
Chilliwack Motor Licence Office        237,971.41
Mission Motor Licence Office        175,773.09
Abbotsford Motor Licence Office        160,287.71
Kamloops Motor Licence Office        158,768.26
Trail Motor Licence Office        157,807.19
Nelson Motor Licence Office        134,320.84
	
Total  $7,146,789.60
The balance of $2,247,810.23 was collected through the various Government
Agencies throughout the Provinces and Police Detachments collecting and reporting
through such Agencies.
In addition to the above, a total of $89,328 was collected this year for drivers'
examination fees.
A further increase in refunds made was again recorded this year, due mainly to
refunds of the unexpired portion of five-year drivers' licences commencing this year.
Total refunds amounted to 6,469, an increase of 2,533 or 64.4 per cent over the number
made last year, and the amount refunded was $46,390.91, an increase of $12,668.97 or
37.6 per cent. This increase was made up of $9,421 in the amounts refunded on the
surrender of unexpired five-year drivers' licences, $1,093.60 in the amounts refunded
upon relinquishment of licences owing to the destruction of the motor-vehicle or its
J REPORT OF SUPERINTENDENT OF MOTOR-VEHICLES,  1951
AA 11
permanent removal from the Province, $2,526.63 in the amount refunded on licences
obtained in error, or in overcharging of licence fees, and the increase in miscellaneous
refunds amounted to $629.17. However, there was a decrease of $1,001.43 in the
amount refunded upon surrender of the motor-vehicle licences under the provisions of
the " Motor-vehicle Act" allowing persons residing east of the Cascade Mountains to
surrender their licences at the end of October, November, or December.

EXAMINATION OF MOTOR-VEHICLE DRIVERS
In 1951 a total of 32,499 persons, of whom 23,064 were male and 9,435 were
female, completed examinations for original drivers' licences. As a result of these
examinations, licences of 4,445 or 19.27 per cent of male applicants were restricted,
while licences of 1,850 or 19.61 per cent of female applicants were marked restricted.
Failure to pass qualifying examinations caused the refusal to issue licences to 78 or 0.338
per cent of male applicants and 35 or 0.37 per cent of female applicants. Particulars
of the results of restrictions and failure in original applicants, segregated into age-groups,
are as follows:—  AA 13

1  REPORT OF SUPERINTENDENT OF MOTOR-VEHICLES,  1951
AA  15
Some 49,029 drivers attended for driver's re-examination, of whom 42,051 or 85.7
per cent were males and 6,978 or 14.3 per cent were females. Resulting from these
examinations, it was determined to be necessary to restrict the licences of 11,200 or
26.63 per cent of male drivers and 2,063 or 29.56 per cent of female drivers. For failing
to qualify, licences were suspended in cases of 341 or 0.81 per cent of male examinees
and 79 or 1.13 per cent of female examinees.
A summary follows, showing the results of re-examinations, segregated into age-
groups, and stating reasons for restrictions and suspensions:—  g*

SAFETY RESPONSIBILITY
During the year a tremendous amount of work was done by this Division in
answering inquiries from the general public. The volume was much heavier than
experienced in former years, no doubt brought about by the increased number of
suspension of licences made throughout the Province.
During 1951 the Safety Responsibility Division received 14,336 British Columbia
financial-responsibility insurance certificates; of this, 11,847 were filed and 2,489 were
returned to the insurance companies, as same had not correctly identified the motor-vehicle
to be covered.
During the same period 11,710 cancellation notices were received, as compared with
8,951 in the year 1950. A summary of the certificates filed and cancelled is shown
hereunder.

J REPORT OF SUPERINTENDENT OF MOTOR-VEHICLES,  1951
AA 23
During the year 220 financial-responsibility cards were issued to corporations who
had filed bonds or who had been issued with a certificate from the Superintendent of
Insurance that such corporation maintained sufficient funds to satisfy third-party liability
claims.
The amount of work accomplished on the card-index wheel system is still increasing
and well over 400,000 individual checks were made during 1951 of names appearing on
notices of transfers, applications for new registrations of motor-vehicles, and original
applications for drivers' licences.
The suspension of drivers' licences under the financial-responsibility sections of the
" Motor-vehicle Act " increased 46.8 per cent over that of 1950, and the suspension of
motor-vehicle licences also showed an increase of 53.8 per cent. The reinstatement
of drivers' licences increased 38.4 per cent over that of 1950, and the reinstatement of
motor-vehicle licences 60 per cent. Full information in regard to this phase of the work
is shown on the attached tables. AA 24

BRITISH COLUMBIA
A total of 3,274 drivers' licences were suspended as a result of Court orders or
recommendations received from Magistrates, and also as a result of persons being found
unfit to drive, or for failing to take and qualify in a driver's examination or re-examination.
This is an increase of 22.1 per cent over that of 1950.
Particulars as to the reason for such suspension, together with the length of time of
such suspension, are shown in the following table:— REPORT OF SUPERINTENDENT OF MOTOR-VEHICLES,  1951 A A 27

■ AA 28 BRITISH COLUMBIA
A total of 37 drivers' licences were forwarded to this office, having been obtained
from persons who had been committed to mental institutions, and 21 drivers' licences
were returned upon receipt of satisfactory proof that such persons were fit to operate
motor-vehicles.
The increase in the number of persons released from the obligation of having to
maintain proof of financial responsibility is 46.9 per cent over that of 1950. Of the total
number so released, 293 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 were able to prove they had not been named as defendant in an action for damages
in connection with the accident, and had neither paid nor agreed to pay any sum for
injuries, or damages in excess of $50. Five persons were released as a result of judgment in an action for damages having been given in their favour, and 675 persons 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
offences which would bring them under the financial-responsibility sections of the
" Motor-vehicle Act," 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.
During the year 1951, 1,722 motor-vehicles were impounded as a result of being
involved in a motor-vehicle accident, and 1,695 motor-vehicles were released. The
reason for the release of these motor-vehicles is shown hereunder:—
(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, 42.
(Z.)  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, 683.
(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, 144.
(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, 76.
(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, 62.
(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, 164.
(h) By the owner or driver of the motor-vehicle producing satisfactory proof
of satisfaction of claims for damages (non-residents), 63.
(/) By warrant of execution, 6.
(/') By judgment in action for damages having been given in favour of the
owner of the impounded motor-vehicle, 3.
(/c) By satisfactory proof being given that, at the time of the accident, the
motor-vehicle was properly parked, 17.
(/) On expiration of six months after accident and no action for damages
taken against owner of impounded motor-vehicle, 434. REPORT OF SUPERINTENDENT OF MOTOR-VEHICLES,  1951
AA 29
MOTOR-VEHICLE ACCIDENTS
This year, although there was an increase of 8 per cent in the number of motor-
vehicles licensed within the Province, there was also an increase of 13 per cent in the
total of accidents reported, 11.6 per cent increase in accidents resulting in personal injury,
and 19.2 per cent increase in fatal motor-vehicle accidents. The total number of reportable motor-vehicle accidents this year was 20,381, as compared to 18,029 last year, an
increase of 2,352. Of these accidents, 4,524 resulted in personal injury, as compared to
4,051 last year, this being an increase of 473, and 186 accidents resulted in fatalities,
as compared to 156 last year, an increase of 30. The number of persons receiving
non-fatal personal injuries this year was 6,624, as compared to 5,720 last year, an increase
of 904 or 15.8 per cent, and 208 lost their lives, as compared to 175, an increase of 33
or 18.8 per cent. Property damage caused in reportable motor-vehicle accidents this year
amounted to $5,784,077.02, an increase of $1,517,292.62 or 35.5 per cent over the
amount caused during last year. No doubt some of this increase in property damage was
due to the higher replacement cost.
This year 14,408 or 70.7 per cent of all motor-vehicle accidents resulted from
collision between motor-vehicles. This again shows a decrease of 0.2 per cent in this
type of accident, when 70.9 per cent of the motor-vehicle accidents resulted from this
cause. As a result of this type of accident, 3,264 persons were injured and 49 persons
died, this being 49.2 per cent of the persons receiving non-fatal injuries and 23.5 per cent
of the persons receiving fatal injuries in motor-vehicle accidents. This shows a sharp
increase over last year, when 10.8 per cent of the persons in this group received fatal
injuries.
The next largest group was the non-collision accidents, which amounted to 2,289
or 1,1.2 per cent of the total accidents. This type of accident resulted in 1,116 persons
receiving non-fatal injuries and 64 losing their lives, which was 16.8 per cent of the total
number of persons injured and 30.8 per cent of the total fatalities.
Motor-vehicles striking fixed objects was the third largest group, totalling 1,635
or 8 per cent of the total accidents, and caused non-fatal injuries to 636 or 9.6 per cent
of the persons receiving such injuries and 14 or 16.7 per cent of the fatalities. This year
there were 972 accidents involving pedestrians, as compared to 991 last year. This
downward trend is also reflected in the number injured, which was 983, a decrease of 4
under last year's total of 987, and the number killed was 63, a decrease of 3 in this same
type of accident, as compared to last year's total of 66.
Once again there was no change in the peak hours of motor-vehicle accidents, which
still remains from 4 to 6 p.m., 3,587 or 17.6 per cent of the accidents taking place at this
time, while Saturday again shows the most number of accidents during the week, which
was 4,460 or 21.8 per cent of the total accidents.
Of the 35,331 motor-vehicles involved in reportable motor-vehicle accidents, 25,948
or 73.4 per cent were private passenger-type motor-vehicles, 4,389 or 12.4 per cent were
trucks, 3,064 or 8.6 per cent were deliveries, and 754 or 2.1 per cent were taxis. This
was a slight increase of 1.4 per cent in the private passenger-type motor-vehicles, a
decrease of 0.4 per cent in trucks, an increase of 0.1 per cent in deliveries, and a decrease
of 0.6 per cent in taxis over last year.
Private passenger-type motor-vehicles were involved in 62 per cent of the fatal
accidents, an increase of 2.1 per cent over last year; 73.4 per cent of the accidents
resulted in non-fatal injuries, an increase of 9.8 per cent over last year, and 73.2 per cent
of the accidents resulted in property damage only, an increase of 0.1 per cent over last
year. Trucks were involved in 22.2 per cent of the fatal accidents, an increase of 1.3
per cent; 10.1 per cent of the accidents resulted in non-fatal injuries, this being a decrease
of 0.6 per cent under last year, and 12.9 per cent of the accidents resulted in property
damage only, a slight decrease of 0.3 per cent under last year.   Deliveries were involved AA 30 BRITISH COLUMBIA
in 7.8 per cent of the fatal accidents, an increase of 0.1 per cent over last year; 8.3 per
cent of the accidents resulted in non-fatal injuries, an increase of 1.1 per cent over last
year, and 8.7 per cent of the accidents resulted in property damage only, a decrease of
0.1 per cent under last year. Taxis were involved in 1.2 per cent of the fatal accidents,
an increase of 0.1 per cent over last year; 2.2 per cent of the accidents resulted in
non-fatal injuries, a decrease of 0.1 per cent under last year, and 2.1 per cent of the
accidents resulted in property damage only, a decrease of 0.6 per cent under last year.
Accidents occurring at railroad crossings increased from 53 last year to 82 this year,
70 of these taking place at unguarded crossings. There were 4 fatal accidents of this
type this year, as compared to none last year, and 3 of these 4 occurred at unguarded
crossings. Accidents in this group resulting in personal injuries increased from 17 to 21,
and to property damage only, from 36 to 57 over last year.
Male drivers comprised 93.5 per cent of the 35,331 motor-vehicle drivers involved
in accidents. Twenty-seven per cent of the drivers so involved were under 25 years of
age; this group caused 25.5 per cent of the fatalities, 28.9 per cent of the non-fatal
injuries, and 26.9 per cent of the property damage. Again the largest group of drivers
involved in motor-vehicle accidents were those between the ages of 25 and 40 years.
Of the drivers involved in motor-vehicle accidents, 90.9 per cent were apparently
in a normal condition while 0.5 per cent were intoxicated, and this latter group were
involved in accidents resulting in 1.6 per cent of the fatalities. This year there were 460
drivers who did not have drivers' licences involved in accidents, in which there were
11 fatalities and 150 people were injured. An increase is also shown in the non-resident
drivers' group, from 647 last year to 958 this year, being involved in 9 fatalities, as
compared to 7 last year, and 229 non-fatal injuries, as compared to 170 last year.
In those accidents in which the action of the driver contributed to the accident,
the largest group, 1,671, were again those who drove off the highway, causing 26 fatalities
and 519 non-fatal injuries. The next largest group, 1,288, were those who again left
their cars standing in the roadway, which resulted in 3 fatalities and 204 non-fatal injuries.
There was a decrease of 1 in the number of pedestrians killed this year, this total
being 65, as compared to 66 last year. Those pedestrians, however, receiving non-fatal
injuries increased from 997 last year to 1,019 this year. Of the pedestrians receiving
fatal injuries, 14 were under 15 years of age, as compared to 8 last year, which is a sharp
increase of 66 per cent; however, a decrease of 13 was recorded in the age-group of 65
years of age and over, there being 21 fatalities in this group this year, as compared to
34 last year. Again the largest group of those who lost their fives or received non-fatal
injuries from motor-vehicle accidents were passengers, of which there were 60 fatalities
and 3,269 non-fatal injuries. In the same manner, drivers were the second largest in this
group, of whom 65 received fatal injuries and 1,830 non-fatal injuries.
This year there were 11,253 accidents during daylight, resulting in 77 fatalities, and
68 people were killed in 4,707 accidents which occurred during darkness. Reportable
motor-vehicle accidents occurring in cities in the Province this year total 11,275, as
compared to 10,712 last year. These accidents showed an increase, although they were
not as serious, resulting in 66 persons receiving fatal injuries, a decrease of 12.5 per cent
under last year; however, 3,098 persons received non-fatal injuries, which was an increase
of 7 per cent over last year, and property damage amounted to $2,464,079.07, as
compared to $1,993,693.33 during last year.
In district municipalities there were 3,770 reportable motor-vehicle accidents this
year, as compared to 3,098 last year, an increase of 672. This was 18.5 per cent of the
total accidents in the Province, which was another gain of 1.3 per cent over last year.
These accidents in the districts and municipalities showed a large increase in persons
receiving fatal injuries, there being 61 in this group this year, as compared to 32 last REPORT OF SUPERINTENDENT OF MOTOR-VEHICLES, 1951
AA 31
year, an increase of 29; 1,598 persons received non-fatal injuries, as compared to 1,294
last year, an increase of 304; $1,174,748.45 worth of property damage was caused, as
compared to $830,505.45 last year. Another increase was once more recorded in the
number of motor-vehicle accidents taking place in villages and municipalities in unorganized districts in the Province, there being 5,336 accidents in these areas, as compared to
4,219 last year, which was 26.1 per cent of the total accidents in the Province, which was
an increase of 2.7 per cent. These accidents resulted in 91 persons being fatally injured,
as compared to 79 last year, 1,928 persons receiving non-fatal injuries, as compared to
1,531 last year, and property damage of $2,145,148.50 being caused, as compared
to $1,442,585.62 last year.
ENCUMBRANCE REGISTRY DIVISION
Registration under the " Conditional Sales Act " declined by 5,788 (11.5 per cent)
during the year, while the number of filings under the " Bills of Sale Act " increased by
204 (2.0 per cent). Filings under the "Mechanics' Lien Act," the "Companies Act,"
and the " Co-operative Associations Act " all showed increases.
There was a slight levelling off in the volume of searches conducted, but this is
entirely due to the curtailment in this regard by the Income Tax Department of the
Dominion Government. Searches made for commercial organizations increased very
substantially.
The revenue of the Division showed a decrease of $2,665.50 (2.1 per cent) to the
sum of $122,194.00.
The following table summarizes the transactions of the Division for the year and
those of the previous year under the provisions of the " Bills of Sale Act," " Conditional

SCHOOL BUSES
During the year there were 550 school-bus permits issued for the purpose of carrying
school-children to and from school, this being an increase of 40 (7.8 per cent).
The Royal Canadian Mounted Police carried out 787 inspections of school buses
during the year and found 274 cases where steering was defective and 134 cases in which
brakes were defective, but in all such instances these defects were immediately remedied. AA 32
BRITISH COLUMBIA
The Motor Carrier Branch carried out 87 inspections of school buses and found
24 cases where steering was defective and 16 cases in which brakes were defective, and
in all such cases these defects were remedied.
There were 117 new school buses put into operation for the transportation of
school-children during the year, a decrease of 16 or 12 per cent from the number of new
pieces of equipment put into operation last year.
STAFF
The continuing increase in the volume of work made it necessary to increase the
staff by the addition of eleven employees.
The following table shows the classification and distribution of the staff at Victoria
headquarters and at the various branch offices throughout the Province:—
