  A group of motorcyclists
by Faiza-Ifrah

Caledon hills in the northern Peel Region (my home county) and then the Dufferin County to the immediate north are a Mecca for motorcyclists, who like driving through many of their picturesque country roads. It is not uncommon to see 4 to 6 motorcyclists driving together in their characteristic Canadian straddle formation. On weekends, many motorcyclists are on a longer mission, that is, to use Highway 10 from Caledon Hills into Dufferin County and continue all the way north to Owen Sound, Wiarton and even to Tobermory at the northern tip of the Bruce Peninsula.

While driving, please respect motorcyclists for they are very vulnerable to any of your risky and unpredictable maneuvering. Keep distance, don’t try to use their side of the lane, and over-take them giving them maximum protection. If you are coming out of a country road and there is a motorcyclist approaching the intersection from the main road, please do let him / her pass through the intersection even though he / she may be much farther away.

I am advising all this, because I have seen and heard of motorcyclists being hit by bigger vehicles, especially during weekends. Also, you want to avoid getting into confrontation with much heavier built motorcyclists of a group driving together J
