ICBC partners with eco car-sharing program



    Take the dirty driver test for a chance to win a 2009 smart car

    VANCOUVER, June 3 /CNW/ - As part of its Drive Smart Save Green campaign,
ICBC is partnering with CityFlitz for the Vancouver launch of its
environmentally-friendly car-sharing program.
    The launch event takes place on Wednesday, June 3, 2009, between 10:30
a.m. and 5 p.m. at Pacific Centre outside of the rotunda on the corner of West
Georgia St. and Howe St. Come by at 12:30 p.m. for the ribbon cutting
ceremony.
    ICBC is currently the exclusive sponsor of CityFlitz's six smart fortwos.
CityFlitz allows drivers to rent a smart car for just $1 per day. All drivers
must meet CityFlitz's safe driver policy regarding speeding convictions,
driving infractions and at-fault collisions.
    Car-sharing is a great way to drive smart and save green. Changing dirty
driving habits can save money on gas and also help the environment by lowering
vehicle carbon emissions. Smart driving also helps to keep our roads safe.
