** The "insured" part became important during season 6 - Scott's unwillingness to learn caused his roommate and nominator Danny (who paid for Scott's insurance) to become fed up, verbally rip Scott a new one, and cancel the policy. As a result, Scott got booted off the show.

* A non-Canadian variant, but has been mentioned on the show: one of the final three contestants on the Dutch version of this show attempted to swerve into the right lane (during a shoulder-check challenge), hit the gas instead of the brakes after clipping a wall, panicked, foot on the accelerator, eyes closed, steering while turned right and managed to hit both the host and a cameraman. Through some miracle, nobody was seriously hurt, although the host wound up in hospital briefly with some minor shoulder and foot injuries. Not surprisingly, the contestant had his license revoked.

* {{Lampshaded}} in the Season 5 pilot, where Andrew Younghusband says "Welcome to the country's most disturbing car show". What better page quote could we ask for?

* Invoked in Season 5 when Crystal's brother-in-law, Tom, was killed while they were filming; while she was allowed to leave the show, the remaining contestants were reminded of when they failed to yield while on the road, the exact reason why Tom was killed. Father Giles was so horrified that he was unable to speak on the confession cam twice and everyone realized the seriousness of their bad driving as each of them could have been the one who hit Tom.

* In the third episode of Season 7, it was pointed out that all of the contestants had confessed to having driven distracted. So, they set up their "easiest" course ever ... made harder by intentionally making the contestants drive while subjecting themselves to distractions (such as food, and the classic "texting while driving"). The results were predictable, but got downright scary when Tab almost made the old 1950's car roll over on styrofoam.

to:

* Henrietta in season 2 becoming completely unresponsive during the final road test.
* Jason Zhang in season 3, stopping in a merge lane in Highway 400.
* Season 6, Dale chasing Andrew with the car. She ''joked'' that she was toying with him.

* The distracted driving challenge in Season 10 is bad enough, but Chanie takes it one step further by ''nearly flipping the car'' while trying to take a selfie. Even the panel were shocked and the crew actually had ''not'' anticipated this sort of thing could happen at all.

Realizing how close she came to being injured alongside with her boyfriend (who had nominated her), and how easily it could happen if she did the same thing with her son also in the car, [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone Chanie broke down in tears]].
