Crashes up and down

If it seems like you've been seeing more car crashes so far in 2018, you may be right.

ICBC has provided some numbers reflecting call volume for the Southern Interior of British Columbia. 

There were 5,727 calls in January 2018, up 6.5 per cent from January 2017, when there were 5,355 calls.

In December 2017, there were 4,655 calls to the provincial insurance agency, while in the same month the year prior there were 5,400 calls, a 16 per cent drop.

However, not all of those calls represent individual claims.

ICBC is expected to post a $1.3 billion loss and there is a chance premiums could go up to cover that loss.

Earlier this year, the NDP government capped injury claims in an effort to rein in rising costs.
