Motorcycle enthusiasts are often a passionate group, and it’s easy to understand the thrill involved in being on the open road with the wind in your hair. Unfortunately, many motorcyclists become injured in accidents. Ontario Provincial Police say that in 2017, there was a “very alarming” number of deadly motorcycle accidents. By August of 2017, there were more motorcycle fatalities than in all of 2016.
Impaired driving, excessive speed, lack of experience, losing control of the vehicle, and poor weather conditions, amongst other circumstances, leave motorcyclists particularly vulnerable. The Ministry of Transportation of Ontario has compiled a list of government-approved motorcycle safety training courses, however, regardless of training and knowledge, accidents do happen.
