PORT STANLEY, ON: Elgin County Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) will be out on Port Stanley streets this weekend to address a common issue during the summer months. Numerous complaints have been received in regards to motorcycles riding unsafely and loudly throughout the village.

As a result, Elgin OPP will be out August 1 - August 2, 2014 educating riders on proper riding etiquette as well as addressing those who choose to ignore the rules of the road and putting others safety at risk as well as their own.

"Our detachment has listened to the citizens of Port Stanley and we are here to help. While we understand that the majority of riders are law-abiding, considerate and contribute to the wellbeing of the village, there are a select few who put residents and visitors at risk through their riding misbehaviour. These are the behaviours we will be addressing this weekend," advises Elgin OPP Detachment Commander Inspector Brad Fishleigh.

Officers will be on the lookout for various Criminal Code driving offences like dangerous driving and impaired driving as well as driving and equipment offences under the Highway Traffic Act.

Under section 75(1) of the Highway Traffic Act, the charge of Improper Muffler carries a total payable fine of $110 as does the charge of Excessive Noise under section 75(4) of the Highway Traffic Act.
