Motors are Running
With more motorcycles revving up in Muskoka, the OPP is asking that all road users exercise caution. OPP reports a ten-year high of 48 motorcycle deaths last year. In nearly half of the deaths, the motorcyclist was not at fault. OPP reports the top contributing factors were: impairment, improper turn, not yielding, and speeding. OPP Constable Samantha Bigley says motorcyclists can be at a disadvantage to motor vehicles on highways.
Bigley says motorcyclists should be vigilant on the roads.
OPP say the leading cause of off-road deaths was drivers not wearing a helmet. Bigley says everyone plays a part in keeping everyone safe.
