TORONTO, ON – On Sunday, August 6, 2017, between 12:30 p.m. and 2:30 p.m., the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) Highway Safety Division (HSD) received numerous complaints of a large group of motorcycles traveling as a group and driving in a dangerous manner on Highways 409, 401, 403, the Queen Elizabeth Way, the Don Valley Parkway and the Gardiner Express Way.
