Road Sense Speaker


Administrator: Insurance Corporation of British Columbia (ICBC)
Jurisdiction: British Columbia

Background: Thirty-eight percent of all fatalities for youth (13 to 21 years old) are the result of road crashes, making road crashes the number one killer and health issue for this age group. If we want to reduce this carnage, keep ourselves and our streets safe, and if we want to maintain affordable insurance premiums, we must reduce crashes. In response to this issue, RoadSense Speakers can present to audiences of all sizes, including classrooms, school assemblies, workshops, conferences and community events.

Goal: The goal of inviting a RoadSense Speaker to address a group, school, or community event is to motivate the audience to consider the consequences of unsafe driving.

Presentation: To motivate audiences to consider the consequences of unsafe driving, RoadSense Speakers may talk about a crash that has dramatically changed their life, while others use their expertise in personal development to motivate children, teens and adults to make positive decisions. There are individual profiles available to find a speaker that suits the needs of any group. The speaker profile includes information about the cost, appropriate audience and requirements of the speaker, and includes contact information so persons can call, email or fax their request.
