A research company called Insights West conducted a national survey that looked into poor driving from coast to coast. Those who responded to the survey were given a series of questions and asked if a particular event had occurred to them in the past month.
The results….not so great. Almost 90% of drivers Canada Wide said they had seen another driver breaking the rules of the road in the past month, and most also believed that driving conditions in Canada are worse than they were 5 years ago.
When asked if a specific group of people were more likely to commit driving errors, both Young and Old drivers were thrown under the bus more than any other group
They also broke down poor driving by region, with British Columbia leading in every single category. The worst drivers in Canada are apparently in British Columbia.
Atlantic Canada didn’t do too badly, finishing in the middle of the pack in most categories including drivers who said they had a close call (slamming on the breaks) in the past month, and those who say they witnessed another motorist not stopping at an intersection where they were required to.
Alberta came first in the category of “most likely to take up two parking spots with one vehicle”. I guess that’s Fort Mac for ya!
