A consultation process on B.C.'s public auto insurance system started Monday and will and continues until April 5.

David Eby, the minister responsible for the Insurance Corp. of B.C., says he'd like to see good drivers rewarded with lower rates and poor drivers penalized.

The recent provincial budget forecast a $1.3-billion deficit at ICBC this year.

Eby says the government will introduce legislation with measures to save money, including a $5,500 cap on claim payouts for minor pain and suffering.
