A bill that would prohibit carrying passengers younger than 14 on motorcycles in Ontario moves one step closer to law when it goes to second reading and debate in the legislature on Dec. 4.
Bill 117, a Private Member’s Bill by MPP Helena Jaczek (Oak Ridges-Markham), is a response to "alarming" research on numbers of young accident victims, Jaczek says in response to a query from a CMG reader.
MPP Jaczek says in part, "a total of 199 motorcycle passengers between the ages of 0-15 sustained an injury in the years 1995-2005."
