OPP announce Motorcycle Awareness Week

It doesn’t matter who is at fault when a motorcycle is involved. Drivers and/or passengers on motorcycles are likely going to sustain serious injury or death.

This past weekend West Region OPP responded to two collisions involving motorcycles that left two drivers with serious injuries. Motorcycle collisions in other OPP Regions resulted in death. All the collisions were preventable and, sadly, in some cases alcohol was a causal factor.

Motorcycle operation requires skills and abilities that far exceed that of driving a car or truck. Motorcycle operators must learn how to drive defensively and offensively in order to stay alive on the roads. Unlike driving a four-wheeled vehicle, the margin of error for motorcycle operators is very thin.

The OPP encourages anyone driving a motorcycle on Ontario roads to take a certified training course on how to drive a motorcycle safely and properly.

“Having taken a certified motorcycle course at a local college I can say with certainty that the acquired skills have saved my life on the roads,” said Sgt. Dave Rektor in a media release.

The OPP is declaring this week Motorcycle Awareness Week across the province. Motorcycle awareness includes all other drivers. With the onset of warm spring weather and the approach of summer, the OPP are asking all vehicle operators to be aware of motorcycles on the roads.

“It only takes a second of inattentiveness to cause a lifetime of regret,” said West Region Traffic Inspector Steve Porter.

Take extra time to make sure you check and double check for motorcycles when driving.
