Snow­mo­bil­ing deaths up, po­lice blame be­hav­iour

The Hamilton Spectator - - CANADA & WORLD -

On­tario Pro­vin­cial Po­lice are warn­ing rid­ers about the dan­gers of snow­mo­bil­ing af­ter a re­cent spate of deaths. They say there have been 13 deaths this sea­son com­pared to eight at the same time last year. Deputy Com­mis­sioner Brad Blair says the deaths are due to rider be­hav­iour. Po­lice have linked the deaths over the last two years to rid­ing on un­safe ice, speed­ing, loss of con­trol, al­co­hol use and driver inat­ten­tion.
