OPP MOTORCYCLE REMINDER
9/11/2017 8:50:58 AM
Police are having issues with accidents involing the 2-wheeled variety of vehicle. In recent weeks, OPP officers have responded to a number of crashes involving motorcycles where many riders were left with life threatening/life altering injuries and some unfortunately died as a result of the collisions. Police say as a motorcyclist, you are a more vulnerable road user because motorcycles are tougher to see than other vehicles, even with the headlights on, and lack characteristics that directly help safety providing practically no protection in a crash. Police say as far as motorists, you are reminded to always have a watchful eye out for motorcycles given how difficult they can be to see especially at intersections and when making left turns across a live lane of traffic or changing lanes.
