SAFE WINTER DRIVING IN SASKATCHEWAN 

Driving conditions in Saskatchewan aren’t always ideal. Inclement weather can affect roads and as a motorist, you need to adjust your driving habits accordingly. On average in Saskatchewan, road and weather conditions are a contributing factor in more than 8,500 vehicle collisions each year. These crashes result in an average of 1,530 injuries and 21 deaths annually.

It’s important to recognize that poor visibility – whether caused by rain, snow, fog or bright sunlight – gives you less time to react to hazards.  Slowing down and constantly scanning the road in front of you is the best way to stay safe.


TIPS AND TRAVEL GUIDELINES

  • Posted speed limits are for ideal driving conditions. When those conditions deteriorate you must slow down in order to maintain control of your vehicle. So even if the posted limit is 100 km/h, in poor conditions you should be driving under that speed.
  • If possible, prepare your car before your trip by checking the battery, windshield wipers, and fluid levels.
  • Be sure your headlights and taillights are functioning properly so that you can see (and be seen) in low visibility.
  • Remember to use caution near intersections when the roads are slippery. Another driver may be approaching too fast and be unable to stop, so you should always look both ways before proceeding, even if you have the right of way.
  • Leave more distance between your vehicle and the one in front of you when driving conditions are poor. Slippery surfaces increase your stopping distance, so following another vehicle too closely could result in a rear-end collision. This is especially true in the winter when snow and ice present a unique challenge to drivers.
  • Stay safe in the cold by checking the road and weather conditions before your trip and ensuring that your vehicle has a full tank of gas.
  • Clear snow from your vehicle and be sure your windows are completely free of frost before hitting the road.
  • When you’re driving in the winter, keep both hands on the steering wheel and try to stay in 1 lane as much as possible.
  • If you begin to skid or lose control of your vehicle, remain calm and take your foot off the accelerator. Don’t lock the brakes. Instead, brake steadily, look where you want to go and steer in that direction.
  • A roadside emergency kit is another essential part of safe winter driving.
  • roadside emergency kit is another essential part of safe winter driving.
  • roadside emergency kitBuy or put together and maintain an emergency kit that has:

    • a shovel
    • Blankets
    • Snow brush
    • Ice scraper
    • Flashlight
    • Batteries
    • Flares
    • Booster cables
    • Candles
    • First-aid kit
    • Food
    • Water cup

No matter what causes poor driving conditions – from a winter blizzard or a summer rainstorm – remember that your 1st choice should be avoiding travel altogether. Wait until the conditions improve to ensure that you arrive at your destination safely.

Bergens auto body shares news of changes to SGI Claims process happening soon!  

Saskatchewan drivers now have a new way for processing collision claims through Saskatchewan Government Insurance (SGI), specifically for minor damages, like in a fender bender-type collision. Drivers can soon choose to take their vehicles to an auto body repair shop approved by SGI, where both the estimate and repairs will be done.

 

The minister responsible for SGI Don McMorris said the new setup will allow drivers to have vehicle repairs completed at the same shop where the claim is filed. SGI's claims centres will still be open and employ the same number of staff. They'll still be an option for drivers with minor damages, and they'll continue to handle larger damage, such as total losses. Where the vehicle will go will still be determined when a driver initially files the claim. The government says an audit process is in place to ensure body shops remain objective in their assessment. "People from SGI will be evaluating, you know, a spot evaluation of the body shop to make sure the damage was accurately assessed," McMorris said. "It's a benefit to the customer, it's a benefit to the body shop, as well as SGI. It gets some of that work out of our adjustment centres." McMorris said repair shops will also be subject to annual training.

Approximately 20 repair shops in the province are already doing damage estimates for drivers, SGI said. It hopes 180 shops will be accredited to do so by the end of the year. SGI estimated that there are more than 200,000 auto damage claims in Saskatchewan each year.

Bergens Auto Body & Collision Centre Trusted Regina auto body experts SGI tip on deductible payment plan

Bergens are a local family business and from the moment you walk in the door you will be treated like family!

Bergens Auto Body Regina are proud to have an amazing 80 Years Auto Body Experience, and they have been serving Regina Auto Body needs for over 30 Years....they have a loyal customer base that simply wouldn't think of going anywhere else. Bergen's are an SGI Accredited Regina Auto Body and Collision Repair shop , they offer courtesy cars to their clients and they specialize in foreign vehicles.

Here they share a tip on Deductible Payment Plan:

 

 

You can use the Deductible Payment Plan to finance your deductible over a period of 10 months

We understand that coming up with the deductible can sometimes be tough on your budget.

It doesn't matter how your vehicle was damaged - collision, vandalism, hail or theft - if you have a deductible to pay, and you're eligible, you can access the plan.

You're eligible for the plan if your personal vehicle is both:

 

  • registered in the LV or F classes
  • covered by basic licence plate insurance

You're not eligible for the plan if: 

Getting signed up

 

 

When you first report your claim to SGI, your adjuster will go over the program with you and let you know if you're eligible.

When you take your vehicle to SGI to be appraised, you'll get an application form to fill out. You can do 1 of 2 things:

  • You can fill out the form at that time and attach a void cheque.
  • You can give the completed form and void cheque to the autobody shop of your choice when you take your vehicle to be repaired.

Payment schedule

 

 

Your payments will start once your vehicle is fixed.

When you pick up your repaired vehicle, you must pay the autobody shop a down payment of $100.

For the balance of the deductible, a payment will be automatically deducted from your bank account over a period of 10 months. There is no interest charged, but a one-time administration fee of $30 will be charged with your first payment under the plan.

Maximum number of claims under the plan

 

You're allowed up to 3 claims through the plan at a time, as long as your account with SGI is in good standing on previous claims.
