We have had quite a few inquiries and seen a few tweets on the topic of ICBC coverage since the Province newspaper reported this news article last week.

We would like to reiterate that your coverage is not void by driving without winter tires.  Though, there are cases where you are deemed to share some fault in the accident which could result in a loss of discount on your ICBC premiums.  Traveling against road signs indicating that winter tires or chains are required can potentially find you at fault and is a traffic violationthat could lead to fines and having your vehicle towed.

The bottom line is to use your best judgement and take the necessary precautions when driving the winter roads.
