ICBC is attempting to cut your compensation by putting a small arbitrary cap on your pain and suffering. Your insurance premiums may stay the same, but your recovery will be reduced by more than 80%. Would you buy fire insurance, if it only paid 20% of your losses? Likewise, why would agree to buy car insurance that only pays you 20% of your losses for all the pain, suffering and loss of enjoyment of life, caused by a distracted or impaired driver? But ICBC wants to make you.
It’s the distracted or impaired driver that should pay for your losses, not you.
There is an epidemic of distracted drivers on the road now that is the root cause of the problem. The solution is to treat the distracted drivers the same way as impaired drivers, to show them that what they are doing is morally wrong and causes untold suffering to innocent people, to raise their premiums, to raise their deductibles, and to suspend them in case of repeat offences.
That is the right way. Making the victims pay is the WRONG WAY.

Tell your local MLA that, “ICBC Caps are the wrong way. Make bad drivers pay. DON’T MAKE THE VICTIMS PAY.”
Together we can save our rights!
