About Street Sense
Street Sense is an award-winning, state-of-the-art hazard perception training application that helps you identify common hazards that can be easily missed when you're on the road. This initiative is a joint collaboration between ICBC, the B.C. government, TELUS and Project Whitecard. It is funded through B.C.’s Strategic Investment Fund.
Street Sense immerses you in 30 different driving scenarios that mimic real driving conditions in B.C., helping you learn how to scan for and avoid hazards in a safe and controlled environment.
You can practice skills like turning left at a busy intersection, sharing the road with cyclists and staying out of large vehicles' blind spots. You'll also learn why hazard perception is important and develop real-world skills to recognize and avoid driving hazards before they happen.
Try out Street Sense and test your hazard perception skills!
