Serious changes are coming to ICBC, as the new NDP government reviews the crown corporation's troubled finances. 
 
BC's Attorney General David Eby says one of the main principles guiding the review is fairness; Good drivers should pay less, while bad drivers increasing costs should pay more. 
 
Eby says on top of targeting bad drivers, other avenues of change will be explored. 
 
"I've struck a senior team of deputy ministers, and experts in the area of road safety and insurance to advise us of the best route forward to get costs under control. We have we will not have the 25 to 30% rate increase as was projected, and that means serious changes for the corporation."
 
According to Eby, road safety options and ICBC's own administration are also under the microscope.
