Spring is here, but that doesn’t mean weekend travel will be smooth sailing.
According to ICBC, an average of 2,200 crashes happen on Easter Weekend every year, which accounts for 610 injuries and two deaths.
They said on average, 21 people are injured in 130 crashes every year in the North Central region over the Easter long weekend (Friday to Monday).
