The insurance industry has been struggling to find a clear-cut answer to the question “when is the last auto accident?”
It is a complicated one that many experts agree is the real issue.
Many are worried about the future of the industry.
But in Canada, auto accident data is not widely available, and experts say it is a much more important issue to the auto insurance industry than the financial consequences of a recent collision.
The Insurance Bureau of Canada is collecting data on auto accident risk every five years, with the goal of making it easier to predict which crashes are likely to be more expensive.
It recently released a report that concluded the average cost of an auto accident in Canada is $30,500, and that most auto accidents are not caused by negligence or other problems.
There are more than a million collisions a year in Canada.
About 1,000 people die in auto accidents, according to Statistics Canada.
About 40 per cent of the people killed or seriously injured in crashes in Canada are women, with a similar number of men.
The average age of people killed in a crash in Canada was 36 years old, and more than 40 per, cent were aged 65 and older.
Many people in the auto industry, including insurance companies, are concerned that more of these crashes are being attributed to driver error than to the driver.
But Dr. Robert Wieland, president of the Insurance Institute of Canada, said the data shows that drivers can make a significant impact on the safety of vehicles.
“The risk of a crash can be reduced by drivers who are taking responsibility for their actions,” Dr. Wielisaid in an interview.
“It’s very easy for a driver to get a collision in which they fail to maintain the speed of the vehicle.
The risk of injury to the occupant of the car is very, very low.”
Wieland said he has seen many instances in which drivers were slow enough to stay in their lane but too fast to slow down.
“I’ve seen accidents where a driver was driving at 30 kilometres per hour when they were actually traveling at 25 kilometres per, but the speed limit was set so fast that they could still be going at 50 kilometres per,” he said.
“We need to make sure we’re getting these cars to the point where they are safe.”‘
It’s not a new problem’The Insurance Institute is urging the government to set a maximum speed limit of 60 kilometres per second in major cities, which would require a special car permit for most drivers.
That would allow police to speed-test drivers and make sure they have enough time to stop.
“There’s a lot of research and data showing that there’s a greater likelihood of a collision occurring in a 60 kilometre zone than in a 40 kilometre one,” said Dr. David Garside, president and CEO of the Institute.
“In the United States, the average speed limit is 65 kilometres per day, and you can see that in the crash data from the United Kingdom.
That is a very high speed limit.”
While the new research shows drivers have a greater impact on a crash, there are still questions about why more than one in five auto accidents results in a fatality.
Insurance companies have found that drivers are more likely to drive at an excessive speed and the speedometer on a vehicle can be as much as 5 kilometres per minute too fast.
The latest government statistics show there were 1,567 fatal auto accidents in Canada in 2016.
The number of fatalities in 2016 was down from 1,891 in 2015, but up from 1.1 in 2011.
The average age at the time of a fatal accident was 35 years old.
That number rose to 38 years old in 2016, up from 35 in 2015.
There were more than 2,500 deaths in Ontario in 2016 as compared to 1,300 in 2015 and 1,200 in 2009.
The government’s 2016 crash data, from the Insurance Bureau, shows that the average age for fatal auto crashes is 36.
That was up from 33 in 2015 but down from 37 in 2009 and 39 in 2000.
The B.C. government recently released its own crash data.
It shows that more than 10,000 drivers died in B. Canada in 2015 as compared with 7,500 in 2015 with the same age, and 4,000 in 2010 with the age set at 37.
The province is now setting a speed limit for cars.
Dr. Garsides findings are consistent with those of Dr. William Faderman, a former dean of the University of Calgary’s School of Public Policy and the University Of British Columbia’s School Of Public Health.
“When you look at what we’ve seen in the United states, the trend is the drivers are driving much, much faster,” he told CBC News.
“And that’s why they’re getting away with the most, and there’s no accountability.
They are not being held accountable for those actions.”
