Free Wi-Fi is coming to a number of rest stop areas in the province.
That includes the popular Britton Creek stop on the Coquihalla Highway.
The province is partnering with Telus and ICBC to provide the service.
Transportation Minister Claire Trevena says she hopes this will help motorists leave the phone alone while driving, and will give them the opportunity to check DriveBC and other sites at a rest area.
Wi-Fi is also going to be available at Galena Bay on Highway 23 – 49 km north of Nakusp and at Loon Lake on Highway 97C – 40 km east of Merritt.
Other spots are:
* Glacier View, Highway 16 – 7 km north of Smithers
* Taylor River, Highway 4 – 37 km west of Port Alberni
* Mount Terry Fox, Highway 16 – 6 km east of Tete Jaune
Travelers will be able to identify which rest areas have Wi-Fi by the Wi-Fi graphic on the rest-area sign.
The Transportation Ministry adds it hopes the expansion of free public Wi-Fi in rest areas will allow drivers to stay connected and avoid using their phones on the road, creating safer conditions for all road users by reducing incidents of distracted driving.
The ministry has also added Wi-Fi to select commercial vehicle inspection centres throughout the province.
