Slow down this long weekend

We've got the long weekend on the way and that brings a reminder to slow down from ICBC.

Spokesperson Alex Lee says it can be a dangerous time on the highways.

"Sixty nine people were injured in 350 crashes throughout the Southern Interior in 2017."  

Lee also has numbers from a new survey.

"Recently in a survey that we did, three quarters of respondents said they have been concerned for their safety as a passenger in a vehicle that they considered speeding."   

In 2017, 23 hundred crashes were reported across the province on the Victoria Day long weekend.
