Pay special attention to the "any other event that significantly affects roadway operations)" portion of the definition below.

By default a traffic jam "significantly affects roadway operations".

---------------
Definition:

Under this definition, events such as traffic crashes, disabled vehicles, spilled cargo, highway maintenance and reconstruction projects, and special non-emergency events (e.g., ball games, concerts, or any other event that significantly affects roadway operations) are classified as an incident.

And the bus is stuck in that same traffic jam, lol. 98% full ...of empty seats.

I look forward to twice-daily postings on this thread about the traffic incidents heading into Victoria in the morning and heading out in the afternoon.

 

Every day, incidentally.

Well I can't possible promise you EVERY day, I will bend over backwards to oblige you in those occasions it has a direct impact on my life.

However, you can assume they are on someone's on a daily basis anyway. 🙄

Yeah, the Naval traffic coming up Admirals stalls out at the Island Highway every, damned, day. I can't get to or from my house inthe car for a while due to people blocking up the intersections en route. I do get a kick out of biking right past the mess on the daily :D Not so fun when I have to bus though. It is faster to hop off at Colville and walk the remaining km.

“True story: An officer just issued a $167 ticket to a resident for rolling a stop sign at McNeil & St Patrick. The driver expressed concern about the dangerous driving in the area, said her daughter was almost hit recently & told our officer we need to be there more often.” https://mobile.twitt...045312896356352

Couple weeks back was walking the dog in the area had a driver going probably about 90 so obviously issued the driver a finger to which the driver proceeded to run the next two stops signs. Happened.

Looks like a van hit and killed a motorcycle rider at Tillicum and Maddock.

 

Tillicum has been blocked off for hours now all the way from Gorge to Burnside.

Speculation at this point unless there's something definitive I haven't seen on social media.

yes it is speculation, and it appears it was misplaced based on shutting down a mile of roadway for the investigation ... my apologies.

 

All involved taken to the hospital.
