20 car accident on the port mann

careful brahs


Quote:
SURREY (NEWS1130) – Traffic is a mess on the Port Mann Bridge this morning.

There are two separate accidents, involving about 20 vehicles.

“Mid-span, there’s a nine-car pile-up westbound. Then we were at a dead-stop again; there are 13 cars after that on the west side of the westbound Port Mann,” describes one caller to News1130 this morning.

Traffic is moving, but very slowly.

It seems like the fog has frozen to the bridge deck.

20 cars need may need repair but 18 people getting there rates raised in two accident, not sure if that's a win or loss for ICBC?

Is it just me, or does the "new" Portmann bridge seem to be causing a lot more headaches then good.

Everything's a win for ICBC, no matter whose at-fault, everyone's rates get jacked.

The 401 in Toronto has 6 lanes going in each direction, with some areas (near the airport, for example) being even wider (8 lanes, I think?). I'm not saying the 401 is accident-free -- in fact, it is far from it. But it really doesn't seem to generate as much news as the Port Mann...

The engineers are more at fault for the falling ice than the accidents on the bridge today due to icy conditions.

Face it - many of us in Vancouver do NOT know how to drive in winter conditions.

It's much more basic than just driving skill - it's a bloody lack of common sense.
