CTV Kitchener has reported that single motorcycle riders may soon be able to use the Province’s network of HOV lanes, a move the Provincial government said will promote safety and cut traffic congestion. Solo Motorcycle riders are currently not allowed to travel in the HOV lanes on Highways 403, 404, 417 and the QEW, and access to them is restricted to certain types of vehicles carrying at least two people. Motorcyclists who break the rules can face fines of $110 and three demerit points. The previous Liberal provincial government had said allowing solo motorcycle riders to use the HOV lanes did not support its goal of reducing the number of vehicles on the road. Our Hamilton Lawyers agree that motorists would be probably be more than happy to know that the majority of bikes would be travelling in the left, instead of the car lanes.
