Public safety is the number one priority for the James Bay OPP and its advocating for better safety practices for motorcycle riders.  Staff Sergeant Baldassare Nuccio says veterency and experience factor greatly into a rider’s safety.  Nuccio says the OPP does what it can to make sure riders are educated, informed and always applying common sense on the road.  Wildlife is a unique issue on northern Ontario roads and a collision with an animal almost always results in serious injury or death.  The OPP says province-wide over 50-per cent of collisions were found to be the result of other drivers on the road.  Nuccio says cooperative driving is the key to staying safe and enjoying the ride.
