So the governments make money from the mangled bodies and the dead drivers, Police enjoy inverstigating fatal crashes and telling families their loved ones died in an avoidable crash, the insurance companies love paying out money to claimants instead of paying dividends to shareholders...and EMT's and Doctors just can't wait for the mext ambulance to roll into the hospital because they get air miles for each patient they process??? Taxpayers and other ICBC policyholders look forward to paying more for their increased premiums...I know I rerally chuckled at the extra $40 or so all my vehicles went up this year. It's not like I had any other plans for that money? You DO hold a different world view from most here.

Maybe they have OTHER numbers suggesting they're right?

See, here's the problem with the "follow the money/cash grab" theory: if people actually followed the law, the money would dry up. Yes, you too can STICK IT TO THE MAN by simply not speeding, not running reds, not drinking and driving, not hogging the left lane. FIGHT THE POWER!

And if people weren't crashing and dying, insurance wouldn't have to pay out as much; they could probably make more profit by simply not decreasing premiums to go with lower payouts. Except...oh wait, ICBC HAS actually lowered premiums before when claims were down. So much for the theory they're only in it for the money.

With doctors, eh... who knows. They're often sitting in the same talks as those who are following the money.
That would be you, wouldn't it? Following the money for all us dumb shmucks?

176,000 speeding tickets issued in 2014 in BC, or roughly 40% of all tickets. Figure that's at least $29M in revenue for the municipal coffers.

If money wasn't a driving factor, explain all the bribery and corruption charges against Redflex in the USA.

No point arguing with Sebberry. It's like trying to convince someone with mental health issues, they have mental health issues....
