Abbotsford is seeing a positive trend in the number of crashes experienced in the community, according to ICBC's latest road safety snapshot.
In an average year Abbotsford has approximately 7,900 crashes and 2,900 people are injured, according to the report.
But the city has seen a steady decline in both the crash and stolen vehicle rate over the past three years.
However, while the crash rate has dropped below the provincial average to around 850 crashes per 10,000 policies in 2011, the community still has more work to do around auto theft.
One of the Abbotsford Police Department's mandates in the coming year is to average one auto theft a day or less and is making good progress to meet that target.
Approximately 60 per cent of all crashes in the province occur in intersections, and ICBC has identified the top 10 crash intersections in Abbotsford for 2011.
The top five intersections are: the King Road on-ramp and McCallum Road on and off ramps at Highway 1; Lonzo Road and Sumas Way on and off ramps with Highway 1; Marshall and McCallum Road intersection and the Fraser Highway and Mt. Lehman Road intersection.
