May is Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month and Bracebridge Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) is asking all road users to be extra vigilant when encountering motorcycles. Motorcycles are smaller and it can be difficult gauge their rate of speed. Please provide extra space for motorcycles while travelling and always err on the side of caution when making turning movements around them.
On Saturday May 13, 2023, at 9:50 a.m. Bracebridge OPP officers responded to a collision between a motorcycle and a pickup truck on Highway 118 near Ashley Lane in Bracebridge. The motorcycle operator, a 37-year-old person from Bracebridge, was transported to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. Police have charged the operator of the truck, a 50-year-old Bracebridge resident, under the Provincial Offenses Act.
