 PROVINCE OF BRITISH COLUMBIA
DEPARTMENT OF THE ATTORNEY-GENERAL
ANNUAL REPORT
of the
MOTOR-VEHICLE
BRANCH
FOR THE YEAR
1967
Printed by A. Sutton, Printer to the Queen's Most Excellent Majesty
in right of the Province of British Columbia.
1969
  To Colonel the Honourable John R. Nicholson, P.C., O.B.E., Q.C., LL.D.,
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 1967.
LESLIE RAYMOND PETERSON,
A ttorney-General.
Attorney-General's Department,
Victoria, British Columbia, December, 1968.
  REPORT OF THE SUPERINTENDENT
OF MOTOR-VEHICLES, 1967
The Honourable L. R. Peterson, Q.C., LL.D.,
Attorney-General, Victoria, British Columbia.
Sir,—I have the honour to submit the Annual Report of the Motor-vehicle
Branch for 1967. Activities of the Branch during the 1967 licence-year, which
ended February 29, 1968, form the subjects of this Report.
It will be noted that the constant growth in the number of vehicle registrations
and licensed drivers, which was evident in past years, continued during 1967. The
British Columbia rate of growth of vehicle registration continues to exceed the
National average, and there is every reason to expect that this trend will continue
in the years immediately ahead.
Once again licence-issuing facilities were provided in additional communities
during the year; this is the result of the growth in the smaller communities throughout the Province. Drivers' examination services have been expanded to provide
the smaller communities of the Province with more frequent service. The expanded
drivers' examination programme has almost eliminated the necessity of issuing
drivers' licences without first giving the applicant a driver's examination.
We are still faced with an increasing number of motor-vehicle accidents.
Traffic fatalities reached a new high of 559 in 1967, an increase of 7 per cent over
1966. Our Driver Improvement Programme is being expanded each year in order
to try to contact in some way drivers who appear to be developing a poor driving
record. We have been unable to discover any simple solution to the highway accident problem. It appears that we must continue to look for better means of solving
this problem. We continue to develop programmes that we hope will make drivers
more aware of their responsibilities to other users of the highways.
In an effort to reduce the incidence of hit-and-run accidents, it is now necessary to have a damaged-motor-vehicle clearance sticker placed on any vehicle involved in a reportable motor-vehicle accident before a repair-shop can repair that
vehicle.
The new legislation concerning alcohol and driving whereby a driver may have
his driver's licence suspended for a period of 24 hours, and which was designed to
keep those drivers who would appear to be a hazard to other drivers at that particular time off the road, has resulted in over 3,000 suspensions in the short period
it has been in effect this year.
Our programme of committing record-keeping to computer methods has continued to advance. During 1967 the advantages of the driver's licence programme
on a tape-oriented computer system, completed in 1966, became apparent. Significant improvements in driver's licence record-keeping was realized, plus machine-
generated searches, warning letters, and problem referrals. The motor-vehicle
application was resystematized and rewritten to include many advantages not included in the initial system, particularly production of output for microfilm reference files. Also added to the motor-vehicle system was a method to handle recordkeeping and production of notices for vehicle inspection, plus faster updating during
motor-vehicle licence renewal periods.
 D 6 BRITISH COLUMBIA
Activities of the Branch are dealt with under the following headings:—
1. Licences.
2. Accidents and Convictions.
3. Driving Safety.
(a) Safety Responsibility.
(b) Examination of Drivers.
(c) Driver Improvement Programme.
(d) Motor-vehicle Inspection.
4. Central Registry.
5. School Buses.
6. Permits for Flashing Red and Amber Lights, Sirens, and Theft Alarms.
7. Staff.
1. LICENCES
Motor-vehicles licensed in British Columbia in 1967 reached the total of
865,217, as compared to 818,111 in 1966, an increase of 47,106 or 5.7 per cent.
Passenger-type motor-vehicles licensed in 1967 numbered 702,003, an increase
of 37,212 over the 1966 total of 664,791. Commercial-vehicle registrations increased by 9,894. For 1967 the total number of commercial vehicles licensed was
163,214.   In comparison, the 1966 total for commercial vehicles was 153,320.
The increase in motor-cycle registrations of 1,842 from the 1966 total of
15,387 to the 1967 total of 17,229 (14.94 per cent) indicates the general motoring
public are still continuing to be interested in using the motor-cycle as a means of
transportation.
Trailer registrations continue to increase. The 1967 total of 91,627 is an
increase of 9,924 over the 81,703 registration total of 1966. The camping and
boat-type trailers account for the majority of this increase and would indicate that
the residents of British Columbia are continuing to enjoy and spend more of their
leisure hours out-of-doors. Consideration is being given to converting trailer records to computer methods.
The comparative statement of licences, permits, etc., for motor-cycles, trailers,
and chauffeurs covers the volumes in these categories during the licence-years 1960
to 1967.

Chauffeurs' Licences
The comparative statement of licences and permits on the previous page shows
the number of licensed chauffeurs in 1967 to be 97,572, an increase of 225 over
the 1966 total of 97,347. The number of Class A category chauffeurs licensed to
drive buses increased to 7,605 from 7,059 in 1966. The Class B category chauffeurs licensed to drive taxis increased to 6,876 from 6,435 in 1966. The Class C
category chauffeurs licensed to drive trucks showed a decrease in 1967 to 83,091
from the total of 83,853 in 1966.
Motor-dealers' Licences
Motor-dealers' licences issued by the Branch are required by individuals or
firms whose business involves the buying and selling of motor-vehicles, motor-cycles,
or trailers. During the 1967 licence-year 1,086 motor-dealers' licences permitting
the sale of motor-vehicles and trailers and 118 motor-cycle dealers' licences permitting the sale of motor-cycles and trailers were issued.
A prerequisite for the issuance of a motor-dealers' licence or the retention of
such a licence is that an insurance bond be supplied to the Superintendent of Insurance in the amount of $5,000 or security be filed with the Minister of Finance in a
similar amount. The insurance bonds are filed with the Branch on behalf of the
Superintendent of Insurance, and in 1967, 338 dealers' bonds were filed, of which
170 were original bonds for new motor-dealers and 168 were replacement bonds.
There were 324 bonds cancelled during 1967. Security was filed with the Minister of Finance by 10 motor-dealers.
A process of investigation is carried out for each new motor-dealer. Information in connection with the proposed operation, previous businesses, corporate formation, business intentions, premises, and compliance with municipal zoning regulations are considered before a licence is authorized.
Distribution of Motor-vehicles
The distribution of motor-vehicles in the various centres of the Province is
always of interest. The following table gives information concerning the numbers
of licences issued through the principal licence offices. Since vehicle-owners move
frequently from one area to another, and vehicles are often sold to new owners
residing in different locations from the previous owners, the table cannot be regarded
as an accurate population count of vehicles in the various parts of the Province.
However, the table does provide a guide as to the distribution of vehicles throughout the Province, and it is of use to groups concerned with community planning
projects and development.

Revenue
Revenue collected by the Motor-vehicle Branch from licences, permits, and
other services, and in the payment of social services tax, increased by 5.5 per cent
to $31,092,561.10 in the 1967 licence-year. The increase was $1,624,175.56 over
the 1966 total of $29,468,385.54. Social services tax collections amounted to
$2,929,854.27, as compared to $2,452,210.51 in 1966. These collections cover
motor-vehicle and trailer taxes on transactions which do not involve licensed motor-
dealers. The motor-dealers make their payment of tax collections directly to the
Consumer Taxation Branch of the Department of Finance.
Offices of this Branch collected 67.22 per cent of the total collections, in the
amount of $21,049,796.38. Offices of the Department of Finance, which carry
out licence-issuing service in areas not served by the Motor-vehicle Branch, collected
the balance of 32.78 per cent. These percentages show no appreciable change on
the 1966 licence-year figures.
The locations of Motor-vehicle Branch offices are listed below, and the 1967
revenue collection at each office is shown:—

Refunds
Legislation provides for refunding of licence fees in several instances where
licences are surrendered to this Branch.
Refunds are made where a vehicle is removed from the Province, and where
a vehicle has been burned, junked, or damaged beyond repair.
Refunds are obtainable by the seller on commercial-vehicle licences when
vehicles are transferred. In these instances the new owner is required to relicense
the vehicle, based on the gross vehicle weight at which he intends to operate the
vehicle.
Refunds may be obtained for vehicles located east of the Cascade Mountains
which are not operated in winter months (November, December, January). Due to
the ability to operate vehicles on an all-year basis in practically all areas of the
Province now, the applications for these seasonal refunds are declining each year.
The fee for the unexpired full years of the five-year drivers' licences are refundable under the following circumstances upon surrender of the licence to this
Branch:—
 REPORT OF THE SUPERINTENDENT OF MOTOR-VEHICLES,  1967      D 11
(a) The licence has been suspended due to the failure of the licensee to qualify
in a driver's examination.
(b) The licensee has taken up residence outside the Province.
(c) The licensee has died.
(d) The licensee has voluntarily surrendered his driver's licence.
The following table sets out the number of refunds and the amount of money
refunded in the 1967 licence-year:—

 REPORT OF THE SUPERINTENDENT OF MOTOR-VEHICLES,  1967      D  13
The toll of motor-vehicle accidents continues to grow. During 1967 the number
of persons killed increased from 520 in 1966 to a new high of 559, an increase of
7.5 per cent.
During 1967 reportable accidents totalled 49,750, an increase of 5,563 or 12.6
per cent over the 1966 total of 44,187. The number of fatal accidents increased
from 445 to 461, an increase of 16 or 4 per cent. The increase in the number of
persons injured in accidents was very slight, the 1967 total being 19,500, an increase
of only 50 over the 1966 total of 19,450.
Accidents resulting in property damage increased from 31,052 in 1966 to
36,595 in 1967, an increase of 5,543 or 18 per cent. The property damage as a
result of these accidents amounted to $28,137,657.31, an increase of $1,941,430.31
or 7 per cent over the 1966 total of $26,196,227.
The preceding table again shows an increase in the accidents per 1,000 vehicles
registered. A slight increase is also shown in the deaths per 10,000 vehicles registered and also in the deaths per 100 million miles driven, but there is again a decrease
in the fatal accidents per 100 million miles driven. The average property damage
decreased from last year.
The following tables set out accident statistics of the various cities, municipalities, villages, and districts in British Columbia for 1966 and 1967.

Convictions
The driving records of the Motor-vehicle Branch include an individual record
on computer tape of every driver licensed to operate a mo tor-vehicle in the Province.
Access to these records is available by means of the driver's licence number or by
means of the name of the driver. The record on computer tape includes all pertinent
information regarding the issuance of a driver's licence and any further action which
is relevant to a driving history. Forming an important part of this driving record is
the record of convictions for driving infractions under the Criminal Code of Canada,
the Motor-vehicle Act, and the Motor-vehicle Act Regulations. In our efforts to
reduce the accident picture on the highways of this Province, we operate a Driver
Improvement Programme based on the information in these driving records.
I would like to take this opportunity to express my appreciation for the high
degree of co-operation by the Courts in the providing of conviction reports and
related information necessary to deal with the driving records of persons subsequent
to Court action.
The following table summarizes the conviction reports under various Statutes
dealing with highway traffic from 1964 to 1967, inclusive. There is a noticeable
increase in convictions for the offence of speeding, and I feel this represents a
stepped-up programme of traffic surveillance by the enforcement agencies throughout the Province.

 REPORT OF THE SUPERINTENDENT OF MOTOR-VEHICLES, 1967      D 31
3. DRIVING SAFETY
(a) Safety Responsibility
Present legislation requires proof of financial responsibility to be submitted by
owners and drivers of motor-vehicles if, as a result of the operation of a motor-
vehicle, a judgment is rendered and remains unsatisfied, upon conviction for an
infraction of the Criminal Code of Canada, or because of an unsatisfactory driving
record.
In all cases where proof of financial responsibility was required to be submitted
by private individuals, a certificate of a duly authorized automobile insurance company was obtained. As a result, the Safety Responsibility Division received 13,166
certificates from the insurance companies and 3,667 interim certificates from the
British Columbia Assigned Risk Plan. A total of 12,764 certificates was accepted
as proof of the policyholder's financial responsibility. A table with full information
concerning the filing and cancellation of certificates is shown hereunder.

An alternative method of submitting proof of financial responsibility, by way
of a bond of a guarantee or surety company, by a deposit of security with the Minister
of Finance, or by satisfying the Superintendent of Insurance that they could be classified as self-insurers, was taken advantage of by some of the larger corporations in
this Province. Upon receipt of appropriate certificates and bonds, 105 financial
responsibility cards were issued by this Division.
During 1967, 4,037 owners involved in accidents were unable to prove that the
operation of their motor-vehicle was insured or were in a position to respond in
damages. As a result, the uninsured drivers or owners had their licences placed
under suspension until they submitted proof of satisfaction of claims or deposited
security sufficient in the opinion of the Superintendent to satisfy any judgment that
could be made as a result of the accident. This is an increase of 8.49 per cent, when
3,721 owners were affected. A total of 4,433 licences was reinstated upon compliance with the requirements, as shown below:—

Suspensions made as a result of unsatisfied judgments arising from motor-
vehicle accidents rose to 396 in 1967, compared to 173 in 1966, an increase of
128.9 per cent.   This reflects in part the increasing amount of settlement agreements
concluded between the uninsured motorist and the Traffic Victims Indemnity Fund.

(b) Examination of Drivers
A total of 114,624 persons was examined by our Drivers' Examination Division
during 1967, compared with the 1966 total of 100,290. Original licence examinations amounted to 85,844, compared with 75,055 in 1966.
The Branch is conducting examinations in the major centres of the Province
on a daily basis, and smaller communities are being serviced by travelling units,
some on a weekly basis and some on a monthly basis, depending on the demand for
examinations. We are servicing more small centres every year as the population
expands in the smaller communities throughout the Province.
The examiners in charge of our drivers' examination units also spend a considerable amount of their time conducting interviews with persons called in under
our Driver Improvement Programme.
Original Drivers' Examinations
Of the 85,844 applicants examined for an original British Columbia driver's
licence, 49,825 were male and 36,019 female. The results of the examinations
showed that 6,357 or 12.76 per cent of the male applicants and 5,213 or 14.47 per
cent of the female applicants failed the examination.
Of the successful male applicants, 419 or 0.96 per cent were given unrestricted
licences, while 43,049 or 99.04 per cent had one or more restrictions. There were
26 or 0.8 per cent female examinees who had no restrictions, while 30,780 or 99.2
per cent had one or more restrictions.
Certificates of competency for physical condition were issued to 643 male
examinees, 291 of them being in the 70-years-or-over group. Certificates of competency for physical condition were also issued to 341 female examinees, 59 of them
being in the 70-year-or-over group.
Failure in one or more of the examinations caused this department to suspend
the right to obtain a licence of 117 male and 77 female applicants. There was a
total of 194 suspensions, and of these, 53 were suspended for physical conditions.
In the road-test portion of the examination, 20,718 male examinees and 17,919
female examinees were given the passing grade of 70 to 79 per cent, 8,693 male
and 6,064 female examinees had between 80 and 84 per cent, 7,779 male and 4,020
female examinees had between 85 and 89 per cent, 3,653 male and 1,420 female
examinees attained 90 per cent or over, and 3,065 male and 1,383 female examinees
had the road-test portions waived as they surrendered valid out-of-Province drivers'
licences.
In 1967, 584 applicants failed one or more written examinations.

(c) Driver Improvement Programme
The Driver Improvement Programme, which had its inception in 1953, is a
flexible programme and is designed primarily to improve the driving habits of those
persons who come to the attention of this Branch as a result of their unsatisfactory
driving record. Copies of driving records produced from data stored in our computer system are scanned continuously, and action is taken commensurate with the
record. Warning letters are being addressed directly from information compiled
within the Data Processing Centre, and 18,118 were mailed from this Branch in
1967. Drivers' examiners stationed at various centres of the Province are trained
to conduct driver-improvement interviews, and, therefore, we are able to interview
drivers in the areas in which they reside.
In keeping with the primary concern of the Driver Improvement Programme to
reduce motor-vehicle accidents, continued expansion of the Division's activities during 1967 included increased involvement in promoting defensive driving courses.
Several staff members have been trained as instructors and have conducted classes
for Motor-vehicle Branch staff and other departments. Letters recommending the
course are being forwarded to persons in some 20 areas of the Province whose driving records indicate that further instruction in safe driving practices is essential.
The Juvenile Offence Programme came into being late in 1967 and is proving
successful. Upon receipt of a Notice of Juvenile Offence issued by a peace officer,
a letter is forwarded to the parents or guardians of the juveniles concerned, pointing
out the offence and recommending participation by the juvenile in high-school driver-
training or defensive driving. This programme endeavours to place the responsibility
for a juvenile's actions on the highway in the hands of the parents or guardians, and
enthusiastic response from the parents or guardians is being experienced. Statistics
from the start of the programme for the months of November and December, 1967,
are quoted hereunder:—

Suspensions under N.O.J.O. (section 86)  43

An accelerated programme of public contact through schools and various organizations was also conducted by the Driver Improvement Programme reviewing
staff, who were also assisted in the outside areas of the Province by members of the
Drivers' Examination Division staff.
Searches of driving records and the preparation of abstracts of driving records
under section 116 (b) of the Motor-vehicle Act have gready increased within the
past years, which indicates that many firms employing personnel responsible for the
operation of motor-vehicles are now becoming more interested in the driving records
of their staff. This increase also reflects the attitude of the insurance industry, which
requires knowledge of updated driving records before issuing motor-vehicle liability
insurance policies to an ever-increasing number of applicants.
Statistics of driving-record searches for the past three years are as follows:—
1965  72,844 1966  79,738 1967  101,410

(d) Motor-vehicle Inspection
The programme of motor-vehicle inspection, through the use of a mobile inspection unit, was continued during 1967. This marks the third full year of operation
of this programme which started in 1964.
The mobile inspection unit consists of a panel truck and trailer which is outfitted with equipment to check front-end assemblies, wheel alignment, and brake and
head-lamp adjustments. In addition, checks are made by the inspection unit staff
of other vehicle lamps, mufflers and exhaust systems, the condition of window glass,
windshield-wipers, tires, and other items that poor condition could prove dangerous.
The mobile unit visited 35 communities in the Province during 1967. A total
of 17,203 vehicles was inspected. Of that number, 72 per cent were rejected on the
first inspection. The following table shows the number of rejected vehicles on which
defects were corrected and subsequently passed on reinspection. In addition, it was
reported that many had their vehicle defects corrected after the inspection unit had
left the community.
Causes of rejection at 35 different locations throughout the Province are one or
more of the following:—

The vehicle inspection programme is operated on a voluntary basis. Its success depends on community support and sponsorship, so that the maximum number
of interested motorists may be encouraged to subject their vehicles to the critical
inspection routine. We enjoyed enthusiastic community support during 1967, with
the result that it was often not possible to inspect all the vehicles which were brought
to the testing locations.
 D 46 BRITISH COLUMBIA
Prior to the visit of the inspection unit to a community, groups of citizens who
are interested in traffic safety are approached to sponsor the visit. Sponsorship involves the development of a publicity campaign, usually as public service announcements in the local newspaper and by radio and television stations, arranging for a
suitable testing-site, and recruiting and organizing voluntary help to assist the two
qualified mechanics who are assigned to the programme by the Branch. We have
also been assisted by the municipal governments of the communities to a great extent.
The aims of the programme are (a) the examination of vehicles and (b) the
development of public interest in the need to maintain vehicles in a safe mechanical
condition. The percentage of vehicles rejected is still high, particularly when it is
considered that these vehicles were voluntarily submitted. The percentage would be
much higher if it were possible to examine the many vehicles in doubtful mechanical
condition on the highways whose owners have no intention of submitting them to
a voluntary inspection.
Public interest in the programme is still high. We are usually requested to provide the inspection service more frequently. The need for additional facilities,
equipment, and personnel to bring the programme to a stage where it can offer
routine inspection to a larger percentage of motorists is evident.
4. CENTRAL REGISTRY
Since 1932 there has been a central housing station for encumbrances affecting
motor-vehicles, headed by the Superintendent of Motor-vehicles, with the Motor-
vehicle Branch in Victoria. In 1961 the Central Registry was formed to record
encumbrances on all vehicles and all other chattels that were not owned by a corporation. Documents previously recorded in the various Court Registries throughout
the Province are now centralized under the jurisdiction of the Registrar-General,
also known as the Superintendent of Motor-vehicles.
Large volumes of legal documents required more storage space than was available and, consequently, thought was given to other means of storage. The year 1962
saw the implementation of a microfilming operation, and now all documents filed
under the Bills of Sale Act or the Conditional Sales Act are microfilmed for future
use, and the original documents are returned to the submitter.
The changes in the method of recording documents necessitated changes in the
method of searching documents. The microfilm reading equipment enabled faster
service to be given when searching and giving information in respect to liens recorded. Such changes have enabled the staff of the Central Registry to stay abreast
of the ever-increasing demand for service.
Methods of financing by private enterprise have altered over the last few years,
causing a decided increase in documents filed under the Bills of Sale Act and, therefore, a levelling-off or decline in documents filed under the Conditional Sales Act.
But again the year 1967 saw an over-all increase in the number of documents registered and the number of chattels searched as indicated in the statistical comparison
following.

5. SCHOOL BUSES
Control over the use and operation of school buses engaged in the transportation of students to and from the public schools in the Province is the responsibility
of the Superintendent of Motor-vehicles. The control extends to the setting of
minimum standards for the construction and maintenance of school buses and provides for periodic inspection of school buses. This inspection is carried out on
behalf of the Superintendent by mechanical inspectors of the Royal Canadian
Mounted Police and by the Motor Carrier Branch of the Public Utilities Commission.
It is also necessary that evidence of satisfactory insurance coverage, in accordance
with the carrying capacity of each school bus, be supplied to the Superintendent.
 D 48 BRITISH COLUMBIA
In 1967 the number of permits issued for vehicles to be used as school buses
were 898 renewal permits and 134 permits for new vehicles, for a total of 1,032, as
compared to the 1966 figure of 873. Of these permits issued, 52 were cancelled as
the result of the lapse of insurance coverage or of poor mechanical condition.
School buses were involved in 30 accidents in 1967, of which 21 were property
damage accidents. Five accidents involved the death of one person and the injuring
of seven persons other than students. Four other accidents resulted in injury to
seven students.
6. PERMITS FOR FLASHING RED AND AMBER LIGHTS,
SIRENS, AND THEFT ALARMS
The Superintendent may, under the provisions of the Motor-vehicle Act Regulations, issue permits to allow a vehicle to be equipped with a flashing red or amber
light. The regulations specify that certain emergency vehicles and tow-cars may be
equipped without obtaining a permit. The permits are required for vehicles such as
pilot cars escorting oversize vehicles or public utility vehicles which must stop on
a highway to repair power or telephone lines. In each case the permit is issued where
a hazard exists and only with the approval of the local enforcement agency.
In 1967, 171 permits for flashing amber lamps and 11 permits for flashing red
lamps were issued. In addition, nine permits were issued to allow the installation
of sirens on vehicles. These vehicles were usually ambulances or the personal vehicle
of the chief of a volunteer fire department in a small community.
No permits were issued for the installation of theft alarms in vehicles.
7. STAFF
The staff of the Motor-vehicle Branch at December 31, 1967, totalled 349,
compared to 345 at the same time in 1966. Permanent staff employees totalled 277,
which is three below the authorized complement of 280; however, replacement
requisitions for these positions were in the hands of the Civil Service Commission.
Temporary employees at the end of 1967 totalled 72, which is an increase of one
over the same date in 1966.
We were once again very ably assisted during our licence-renewal period
through the co-operation of the Chairman of the Liquor Control Board, who provided up to 55 clerks for periods ranging from a few days to two months. With this
assistance we were able to provide adequate service to the public during the renewal
period, with the necessity of hiring only a minimum of temporary assistance.
The work requirements of the Branch are still increasing. Electric data processing and microfilm processing is helping us cope with the increased work load, but
much of the credit for the handling of this heavy work load without additional help
must be given to the staff of the Branch.
I am sincerely grateful for the initiative and loyalty displayed by the staff in
providing us with the ability to cope with the rapidly expanding work situation. The
many Branch licence and examining offices continue to process ever-increasing work
loads, generally without the benefit of additional staff. We have been able to provide
them with some relief in their work detail, but this does not compensate for the large
increase in the number of persons applying at these offices for motor-vehicle and
drivers' licences.
CONCLUSION
This Report shows a continuing growth in the activities of the Motor-vehicle
Branch.   Increase in vehicle registrations and in the issuance of drivers' licences,
 REPORT OF THE SUPERINTENDENT OF MOTOR-VEHICLES,  1967      D 49
together with the provision of motor-vehicle issuance services to more communities
throughout the Province, are examples of this growth.
The Branch faces the challenge of coping with the ever-increasing highway
traffic problems resulting from the increase in the number of motor-vehicles and
drivers. Highway safety depends greatly on the vehicles being maintained in safe
mechanical condition. Operators of these motor-vehicles must continually be aware
of their responsibilities as drivers on the highways of this Province. These two
aspects of highway safety have received special attention.
The compulsory vehicle inspection programme, commencing in Greater Victoria in 1968, will help keep vehicles in better mechanical condition from a safety
point of view. This will greatly augment the long existing compulsory programme
in Vancouver and the voluntary programme available in some other centres.
Efforts to have safer drivers on the road involves not only control of the driver
once he has a driver's licence, but also requires better training of persons who wish
to apply for a driver's licence. There is an increase in the number of persons receiving training in the Driver Education Programme in effect in a large number of the
secondary schools throughout the Province, but the importance of having more and
more of the young applicants receive such training before receiving a driver's licence
cannot be emphasized too strongly. Commercial driving schools continue to expand
their efforts, and it is gratifying to note that large numbers of new drivers are using
their services.
Among drivers who are already licensed there has been considerable interest
in a defensive driving course sponsored by the British Columbia Safety Council and
available in a number of areas of the Province through adult education programmes.
It is hoped that this course will be expanded to all areas in the Province.
The Driver Improvement Programme of the Branch is being continually expanded. Each year we are dealing with more drivers who are developing a poor
driving record.
I am grateful to all those who have assisted this Branch in its efforts. Members
of your Department always give freely of their assistance and advice. We continue
to have excellent liaison with the Courts and enforcement agencies throughout the
Province, which is invaluable to us in the meeting of our obligations. We are also
most fortunate in the degree of co-operation we receive from many business and
community groups whose continued interest and support of programmes dedicated
to highway safety is indeed commendable.
I have the honour to be,
Sir,
Your obedient servant,
RAYMOND A. HADFIELD,
Superintendent of Motor-vehicles.
