BRANCH
FOR THE YEAR
1971
Printed by K. M. MacDonald, Printer to the Queen's Most Excellent Majesty
in right of the Province of British Columbia.
1972
  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 1971.
ALEXANDER BARRETT MACDONALD
A ttorney-General
Attorney-General's Department,
Victoria, B.C., November 1972.
  REPORT OF THE SUPERINTENDENT
OF MOTOR-VEHICLES, 1971
The Honourable A. B. Macdonald, Q.C.,
Attorney-General, Victoria, British Columbia.
Sir: I have the honour to submit the Annual Report of the Motor-vehicle
Branch for 1971. The Report deals with the activities of the Branch during 1971
and provides an accounting for the various aspects of licence issuance for the 1971
licence-year which ended on February 29, 1972.
Indicative of the volume of business transacted by the Branch in 1971 are the
following issuance totals: Motor-vehicle registrations, which include motor-cycles,
reached a total of 1,019,523, an increase of 6.52 per cent over the 1970 licence-year.
Trailer registrations of all types reached a total of 141,978, an increase of 9.3 per
cent over the 1970 registrations. Licensed drivers increased to 1,289,440, which is
an increase of 4.5 per cent over the 1970 total. Revenue collected by the Motor-
vehicle Branch from licences, permits, motor-vehicle inspection, and other services,
and the payment of social services tax, amounted to $41,908,970.45 in the 1971
licence-year, which is an increase of 9.83 per cent over the previous licence-year.
This Report includes a section which deals with motor-vehicle accidents and
provides a number of tables in statistical form setting out the information gathered
from accident reports. Traffic fatalities totalled 636 in 1971, an increase of 12 per
cent over the 1970 total of 559. Deaths per 100 million miles travelled on British
Columbia highways was at the rate of 6.51 in 1971, compared to the rate of 6.70 in
1970. The number of accidents reported during 1971 was 59,745, compared to
60,778 in 1970. Part of the reduction is due to the change in the property-damage
accident-reporting level which was altered on July 1, 1970, from the previous minimum of $100 to $200, and which new reporting level was adopted by all the Canadian provinces in 1970.
This Report includes tables of offences against the Criminal Code, Canada, and
the Motor-vehicle Act and the Motor-vehicle Act Regulations which concern the
operation of motor-vehicles. It also includes information as to the activities of the
Driver Improvement Programme of the Branch, which is designed to deal with
persons who have committed offences against the various traffic laws. The Drivers'
Examination Division conducted 145,882 drivers' examinations during 1971. The
Drivers' Examination Division was also involved in the implementation of the
Classified Driver Licence Programme which commenced on September 1. This
programme sees all drivers now holding one licence of a category which indicates
the type of vehicle they are licensed to operate.
The activities of the Motor-vehicle Inspection Programme continued to expand
in 1971 by bringing into service in October the Burnaby Inspection Station. The
new station is additional to the Vancouver Inspection Station and the Richmond
Inspection Station in serving the Greater Vancouver area. The Branch continues to
operate a motor-vehicle inspection station in Victoria to serve the metropolitan area.
The total of vehicles inspected during 1971 was 448,065, an increase of 51 per cent
over the 1970 vehicle inspection total of 296,222.
A summary is included of the activities of the Central Registry, which is responsible for the filing of bills of sales, conditional sales, and other documents involving
 F 6 BRITISH COLUMBIA
motor-vehicles and other personal chattels. Indicative of the increased volume of
work handled by the Central Registry in 1971 is the registration of 286,298 documents, an increase of 30,359 or 12 per cent when compared with the 1970 calendar
year. Similar rates of increase were noticed in volumes of searches and other
activities of the Central Registry.
The various activities of the Branch are dealt with under the following headings:
1. Licences.
2. Accidents and Convictions.
3. Driving.
(a) Driver Improvement Programme.
(b) Examination of Drivers.
(c) 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
Mot or-vehicles licensed in British Columbia in 1971 reached the total of
1,084,184, as compared to 1,019,085 in 1970, an increase of 65,099 (6.39 per cent).
Motor-vehicles and motor-cycles licensed in British Columbia in 1971 reached
the total of 1,109,523, as compared to 1,041,585 in 1970, an increase of 67,938
(6.52 per cent).
Passenger-type motor-vehicles licensed in 1971 numbered 856,086, an increase
of 44,496 over the 1970 total of 811,590. Commercial-vehicle registrations increased by 20,603. For 1971, total for commercial vehicles was 228,098. In
comparison, the 1970 total for commercial vehicles was 207,495.
The increase in motor-cycle registrations of 2,839 from the 1970 total of
22,500 to the 1971 total of 25,339 (12.62 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 are still continuing to increase. The 1971 total of 141,978
is an increase of 12,114 over the 129,864 total of 1970. The camping and boat-type
trailers account for the majority of this increase and would indicate that the residents of British Columbia are still continuing to enjoy and spend more of their
leisure hours out-of-doors.
The comparative statement of licences, permits, etc., for motor-cycles, trailers,
and chauffeurs covers the volumes in these categories during the licence-years 1964
to 1971.

Chauffeurs' Licences
The comparative statement of licences and permits shows the number of
licensed chauffeurs in 1971 to be 98,597, a decrease of 10,299 over the 1970 total
of 108,896. The number of Class A category chauffeurs licensed to drive buses
decreased to 8,433 from 8,714 in 1970. The Class B category chauffeurs licensed
to drive taxis decreased to 7,658 from 8,459 in 1970. The Class C category
chauffeurs licensed to drive trucks showed a decrease in 1971 to 82,506 from the
total of 91,723 in 1970.
The over-all decrease in chauffeurs' licences can be attributed to implementation of the "classification" of drivers' licences in British Columbia which became
effective September 1, 1971. This classification of drivers' licences is a uniform
change that was designed to affect each province in Canada.
On September 1, 1971, all drivers' licences issued in British Columbia were
classified according to the demonstrated ability of the driver. Special tests are given
to drivers of large trucks, buses, and taxis. The separate chauffeur's licence which
had been used in British Columbia for many years was abandoned. The chauffeur's
licence was tied to the concept of employment purposes for driving large vehicles so
that nonemployment driving of a large vehicle (i.e., voluntary driving of a Sunday
school bus or driving a large vehicle to move personal effects) did not necessitate the
driver having a chauffeur's licence. Now all drivers of large vehicles, regardless of
the purpose for driving, must be qualified and licensed for the vehicle being driven.
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 1971 licence-year, 1,205 motor-dealers' licences permitting
 REPORT OF THE SUPERINTENDENT OF MOTOR-VEHICLES, 1971
F 9
the sale of motor-vehicles and trailers and 148 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 407 dealers' bonds were filed in 1971, of which
227 were original bonds for new motor-dealers and 180 were replacement bonds.
There were 372 bonds cancelled during 1971. Security was filed with the Minister
of Finance by five 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.

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
direcdy to the Consumer Taxation Branch of the Department of Finance.
Offices of this Branch and Motor-vehicle Inspection (Victoria, Vancouver,
Burnaby, and Richmond) collected 66.42 per cent of the total collections, in the
amount of $27,836,686.13. Offices of the Department of Finance, which carry out
our licence-issuing service in areas not served by the Motor-vehicle Branch, collected

the 1970 licence-year figures.

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 is refundable under the following circumstances upon surrender of the licence to this Branch:
(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 amount of money
refunded for the 1971 licence-year:

The total number of motor-vehicle accidents recorded decreased during 1971
over the year 1970. However, one must keep in mind that the reporting of accidents
was changed as of July 1, 1970. From that date on accidents were reported if
property damage was in excess of $200, compared to $100 previously, or if there
was death or personal injury. The number of persons killed increased considerably
to 636 from 559 in 1970, while the number of injuries decreased slightly.
Fatal accidents increased in 1971 over 1970 from 471 to 538, a similar ratio
to that number of persons killed. The total accidents is down slightly from 60,778
in 1970 to 59,745 in 1971.
The total property damage resulting from these accidents was $47,438,491.01,
compared to $44,467,327.60 in 1970. This increase would be a result of an increasing cost to repair vehicles.
It is difficult to make a proper comparison with the statistics in 1970 due to the
change in accident reporting midway through the year. This change will not affect
the fatality figure and, although the increase is significant, there is a slight decrease
in fatal accidents per 100 million miles driven.

Convictions
The driving records of the Motor-vehicle Branch include an individual record
on computer tape of every driver licensed to operate a motor-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 1968 to 1971, inclusive. The convictions for the
offence of speeding continue to increase, indicating thorough and complete traffic
surveillance by the enforcement agencies throughout the Province.

 REPORT OF THE SUPERINTENDENT OF MOTOR-VEHICLES, 1971        F 33
3. DRIVING
(a)   Driver Improvement Programme
The Driver Improvement Programme continued to operate effectively during
1971. A considerable number of drivers availed themselves of the opportunity
of improving their driving habits by registering for and completing courses in defensive driving. Accumulated demerit point totals provided the information whereby
a total of 10,103 drivers were notified that their licences would be suspended for
a period of 30 days unless they completed a Defensive Driving Course. The response was very encouraging and a large percentage of those persons who were
given this option registered for the course.
Warning letters were forwarded to 29,969 drivers whose demerit-point total
reached six and these letters included a recommendation that they take Defensive
Driving, resulting in many persons registering for the course.
Accumulated demerit-point totals also resulted in the suspension of licences
from two weeks to three years.
As provided under Part II of the Motor-Vehicle Act, driver's licences of persons who failed to satisfy a final judgment or on whose behalf payments of money
were made by the Traffic Victims' Indemnity Fund as a result of an agreement or
judgment against the driver, were suspended in 544 instances during 1971.
Continued progress was made in 1971 to control drivers who became hazardous
on the highways as a result of the use of alcohol or drugs. The services of various
offices and organizations such as Alcoholics Anonymous and the Alcoholism Foundation of British Columbia were utilized to their fullest extent, and their co-operation
was outstanding.

(b) Examination of Drivers
During 1971, the Drivers' Examination Division examined a total of 145,882
drivers.   Original licence examinations totalled 119,575.
September 1, 1971, was the conversion date to the classified driver licence
programme. The principle of the classified licence concept is to categorize drivers
according to their demonstrated ability to drive. Drivers of heavy vehicles must
take special qualifying tests and meet medical standards to obtain licences to drive
vehicles in any of several categories.
With the advent of the classified driver licence, the previous programme of
chauffeur licensing was terminated. The chauffeur licence was based on the premise of a person driving a vehicle in the course of his employment. Strict examinations had long been given to drivers of buses and taxis, but no qualifying test
was required of a driver of a truck, no matter how large the vehicle.
The classified licence now requires the qualification of a driver according to
the type of vehicle he drives. A voluntary bus driver must be just as qualified as
a school-bus or transit-bus driver. The person who rents a large truck or tractor-
trailer for his personal use must be just as qualified as the man who drives one of
these vehicles in earning his living.
All 98,579 chauffeurs licensed to August 31, 1971, were classified into the
categories 1 to 5. In achieving this objective, many certifications were received
from employers who gave the Motor-vehicle Branch undertaking that named employees were presently driving competently the type of equipment for which they
were applying for a classified licence. In all instances of drivers of class 1 vehicles
(tractor-trailers), medical reports were necessary before the licence could be confirmed. Some 44,373 drivers were examined throughout the Province by drivers'
examiners in tests to qualify for appropriate licence classification.
Drivers of air-brake-equipped vehicles needed special endorsements on their
licences to indicate qualification.    Additionally, much effort was directed by the
 REPORT OF THE SUPERINTENDENT OF MOTOR-VEHICLES, 1971        F 35
Drivers' Examination Division to encourage vocational institutes, technical school,
and adult education programmes to provide training facilities for vehicle drivers
desiring to obtain training for the use and care of vehicle air-brake systems.
Motor-cycle road tests continue to receive a great deal of attention. More
meaningful tests have been devised and are in continual use. The new tests are
more demanding and require greater demonstration of driving skills. More improvements must come in motor-cycle examinations, but there are considerable
limitations in developing tests because of lack of facilities in all but a few areas of
the Province.
The teaching of motor-cycle riding is a problem which is going to need development. The British Columbia Safety Council is in the early stages of providing this
type of training, and its progress will be closely observed.
The licensing and control of commercial-driver training school and driver-school
operators and instructors is a responsibility of the Drivers' Examination Division.
The schools teaching methods and other details are under regular surveillance.
At the end of the 1971 licence-year, licences were in effect for 67 driver-training
schools, managed by 61 licensed driver-school operators. In addition, 108 persons
held a licence as a driver-school instructor.
Licensing requirements involve vision tests, medical examinations, written tests,
and teaching assessment tests. The written and teaching tests were designed with
the help of the Standards and Research Branch of the Department of Education, in
the interest of determining if applicants for the licences have teaching ability. The
long-range planning, besides upgrading the level of driver training available to the
public, is to encourage suitable persons into this expanding field. Hopefully, these
qualified schools will be a nucleus of a network of driver-training schools to form
an important part in what will ultimately be facilities to train driver-licence applicants when the compulsory pre-licence training is required by the Motor-vehicle Act.
Driver-training schools are required to post a $500 security bond, which is
available if there is proof of misrepresentation or improper practice in the conduct
of the business.
(c) Motor-vehicle Inspection
During 1971 the compulsory programme of motor-vehicle inspection was continued in the Victoria area, the Delta-Richmond area, and the Vancouver-North
Shore area. These areas are served by inspection stations in Victoria, Richmond,
and Vancouver, with a total of nine inspection lanes.
In October 1971 the Burnaby Inspection Station at 4705 Wayburne Drive,
Burnaby, commenced operation. This station is comprised of four inspection lanes.
The station is manned by 34 Inspectors and four clerks plus eight Inspectors and two
cashiers who work on a part-time basis. The Burnaby Inspection Station will serve
the City of New Westminster, City of Port Coquitlam, City of Port Moody, District
of Burnaby, and the District of Coquitlam.
Notices requiring the owner to present his motor-vehicle for inspection were
mailed to 226,296 owners during 1971, of whom 62,826 required a second notice.
Notification of suspension were given to 35,067 owners.
The following is a summary of vehicles inspected:

A total of 16 Authorized Fleet Inspection Stations have been established. Two
of these stations inspect all types of vehicles and 14 are authorized for regular trailers
only.   A total of 2,080 vehicles were inspected and approved at these stations.
4. CENTRAL REGISTRY
The Superintendent of Motor-vehicles is also known as the Registrar General
and is responsible for the operation of the Central Registry. Documents are recorded
and searched under the Bills of Sale Act, Conditional Sales Act, Assignment of Book
Accounts Act, and Mechanics' Lien Act. Documents are also filed and searched in
connection with the Companies Act when the chattels refer to vehicles.
The Central Registry accepted for registration a total of 286,298 documents
during the 1971 calendar year for an increase of 30,359 when compared with the
1970 calendar year. The Data Processing Centre of the Department of Industrial
Development, Trade, and Commerce was required to key-punch 439,324 "lien
cards" for an increase of 51,598 over the previous year. Many documents accepted
for registration now include more than one vehicle, or a vehicle(s) plus other goods
or chattels.
The demand for search information has also shown a similar increase and
these requests for search information are received at the counter, by mail, telephone,
 F 38
BRITISH COLUMBIA
teletype, telex, and TWX. In 1971 the value of search fees amounted to
$182,407.75, an increase of $25,146.25 over the 1970 calendar year.
The Central Registry accounted for $366,252, an increase of $21,326 over the
1970 calendar year, through handling of accounts for requests for drivers' abstracts.
These fees were deducted from the various search fee accounts maintained by the
Central Registry (approximately 1,900 accounts). Search fee accounts may also
be used to obtain driver-licence and motor-vehicle information as well as the regular lien-searching conducted by the Central Registry.
The total revenue accounted for by the Central Registry in 1971 was
$1,336,459, an increase of $125,418.75 over the previous year.
A statistical comparison with the 1970 calendar year follows, providing a
detailed report of the various activities of the Central Registry:

 REPORT OF THE SUPERINTENDENT OF MOTOR-VEHICLES, 1971        F 39
5. SCHOOL BUSES
Control over the use and operation of school buses engaged in the transportation of students to and from 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,
the Motor Carrier Branch of the Public Utilities Commission, and senior Motor-
vehicle Inspectors of the Branch. Motor-vehicle Inspectors at the four Inspection
Stations operated by the Branch are appointed Mechanical Inspectors for the inspection of school buses. School buses in the Victoria area and Greater Vancouver area
are inspected at an Inspection Station in the area or by an Inspector from a station.
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.
In 1971 the number of permits issued for vehicles to be used as school buses
was 1,002 renewal permits and 128 permits for new vehicles for a total of 1,130, as
compared to the 1971 figure of 1,151. Of these permits issued, 55 were cancelled
as the result of the lapse of insurance coverage or of poor mechanical condition. In
1971, school buses were involved in 57 accidents, of which 37 resulted in property
damage only; 26 students and 19 persons other than students were injured in 20
injury accidents. There was one fatal accident involving a school bus where two
persons other than students were killed in the year 1971.
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 lamp. The
regulations specify that certain emergency vehicles, tow cars, and pilot cars may be
equipped without obtaining a permit. The permits are required for vehicles such
as 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 1971, 79 permits for flashing amber lamps and 51 permits for flashing red
lamps were issued. In addition, 29 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.
Two permits were issued for the installation of a theft alarm in a vehicle.
One permit was issued to allow police vehicles to install a device which would
cause their headlamps to flash white light.
7. STAFF
Staff in the Motor-vehicle Branch increased during the calendar year due to the
opening of the new Burnaby Motor-vehicle Building in October 1971. This additional facility required the establishment of 53 new permanent positions to handle
motor-vehicle issuance, driver examinations, and motor-vehicle inspections. One
permanent position was transferred from our complement to that of the Central
Microfilm Bureau in the Provincial Secretary's Department.
These transactions resulted in a net increase of 52 permanent positions totalling
382 for the year 1971 over 330 in 1970.   We had 55 temporary continuous positions
 F 40 BRITISH COLUMBIA
in our staff; however, five positions were outstanding due to the requisitions not being
filled as of December 31,1971.
During the months of lanuary and February, our licence renewal period, our
own staff was very ably assisted by staff from the Liquor Control Board. We received assistance from 75 members of the Liquor Control Board for varying periods
of time and we wish to express our gratitude to the Chairman of the Liquor Control
Board and its members for their assistance. It would be impossible for our own
Branch staff to adequately serve the public during this heavy renewal period.
Once again it has been necessary for the staff of the Motor-vehicle Branch to
give just that little bit more of themselves and of their time in order that service to
the public continues to remain high in the esteem of all concerned. The population
of British Columbia is ever expanding with new and improved programmes continually being adopted. Consequently, demands upon our staff proportionately increase, and yet those demands are always met with a continued loyalty and dedication. The administrators of the Motor-vehicle Branch are aware of the manner in
which the challenges are constantly met and are very appreciative and proud of the
Motor-vehicle Branch staff.
CONCLUSION
Details of the scope and work requirements of the Motor-vehicle Branch in
1971 are set out in this Report. In all activities of the Branch there is a continuing
trend of increased volumes of activity which the Branch faces in its function of
serving the people of this Province. There have been some staff increases in the
clerical work force, but these increases are considerably less than the increased
volume of work handled. To keep up with the work requirements, it has been necessary to do staff retraining and altering of work routine, resulting in more efficient
handling methods. In some areas of the activities of the Branch, under-staffing
is becoming evident and it will be necessary in the next few years to bolster these
work areas with additional personnel if the public is to be adequately serviced. A
great deal of attention continues to be placed by the Branch in work activities dealing with problem drivers. This is a very time-consuming programme, but it is important that it be carried on and expanded because it offers the only realistic approach
and hope in improving the highway traffic problem.
This Branch continues to enjoy the co-operation of many persons and organizations throughout the Province, and without this help it would be most difficult to
carry out our work. The members of your Department are extremely helpful and
willing to assist us in the many problems that we jointly face. In concluding this
Report, I want to pass on my appreciation to the Courts and enforcement agencies
throughout the Province with whom we work every day and without whose valuable
assistance it would be extremely difficult to meet our many obligations.
Respectfully submitted,
RAYMOND A. HADFIELD
Superintendent of Motor-vehicles
