Accidents caused by distracted driving is a common occurrence. A driver's attention can easily be diverted with texting, making phone calls, eating on the go or breaking up a sibling fight in the back seat. Unfortunately, serious injury or death can occur when there is a deviation from the task of driving. Recently, a Connecticut man was charged with taking a life of another in a pedestrian accident due to being distracted while driving.

Many find riding a motorcycle not only enjoyable but also beneficial: easy parking, open air, good gas mileage, etc. However, the benefits do not come without risks. Even with a helmet, driving a motorcycle leaves little protection of the body. In addition, the drivers of other motor vehicles may fail to see the smaller road vehicle, sometimes resulting in a motorcycle accident. It is important for those living in Connecticut to be aware of motorcycles riding nearby to avoid serious injury or death.
