Although motorcycle accidents can happen anywhere at any time, there are significant number of motorcycle accidents on Ontario's Highway 400. The Highway 400 connects the city of Toronto with the central and northern regions, including popular cottage and recreational areas. Highway 400 serves as the primary route from Toronto to cottage country in southern Georgian Bay and Muskoka. Given the volume of traffic, it is not surprising that many motorcycle accidents occur on Highway 400.
Highway 400 motorcycle accidents often result in serious injuries and, sadly, these motorcycle accidents are sometimes fatal. This is usually because of the higher speed limit on Highway 400. A majority of motorcycle accidents occur because drivers fail to observe the motorcycle. Very often motorcycles are cut-off or side-swiped by cars that are changing lanes. Motorcycle riders in Ontario often take steps to make themselves more obvious to other drivers. This may include bright coloured clothing, loud exhaust pipes, and daytime running lights.
