Connecticut residents may find themselves among the thousands of Americans who enjoy driving motorcycles, both as an efficient method of transportation and an enjoyable pastime. While certainly, most motorcyclists will say that nothing can match the thrill of a beautiful day on the open road, they also know that there is always the risk of a serious motorcycle crash. While obeying speed limits and other traffic laws, proper safety courses and wearing a helmet can go a long way to prevent tragedy, the potential for motorcycle accident injury remains a major concern.
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.
Recalls are not uncommon and unfortunately happen quite often. No matter how great the motorcycle manufacturer is, mistakes happen and things ultimately slip through the quality inspections of some factories. The real problem lies when owners do not comply with the recall leading to a potentially dangerous situation. Residents of Connecticut owning a Harley Davidson motorcycle, may want to double check their mailboxes as a recent recall for defective motorcycle parts was just issued by the company.
Dangers of the roadways have claimed the life of another person in the state. A recent news article has shared the unfortunate incident with an outcome that will surely devastate many. A motorcycle crash in Connecticut resulted in the tragic death of one man and has left authorities trying to figure out who or what was to blame in the event.
Sadly, another life has been taken too soon, and one family will mourn the loss of one of its own. Motorcycling, while an enjoyable hobby, does come with some extra risks. Some drivers pay less attention and don't see motorcycle drivers, and motorcycle drivers are more exposed to the roadway than people in cars. Recently, one man in Connecticut has lost his life as the result of a motorcycle crash.
A two-vehicle collision sent two individuals to the hospital on Sunday, Aug. 13. A Connecticut state trooper riding a motorcycle crashed into a car being driven by an elderly man. The motorcycle accident has left two individuals recovering from injuries suffered during the early morning event.
An early morning crash has led to serious injuries for one man. The Connecticut man was riding his motorcycle when it crashed into the back of an SUV. A recent news story gives more details about the tragic motorcycle crash and the status of the motorcycle rider.
The freedom of the open road is a significant appeal to bikers. Unfortunately, that freedom comes with certain costs. Among those costs are the potential to be injured in a motorcycle accident. Sometimes the accident doesn't only injure the driver of the motorcycle, as passengers can be harmed as well. In Connecticut, a recent event was covered in the news, telling the story of a biker and his passenger who were injured in a motorcycle crash.
There is a reason that awareness campaign signs urge drivers to watch out for bikers. It is because death or serious injury often occur as a result of a motorcycle crash. Since motorcyclists are more exposed to the road while they ride, they face an increased danger of personal injury should they become involved in an accident. Often a tragedy can be avoided with careful, sober driving. Unfortunately, in Connecticut a woman recently lost her life as a result of an apparent drunk driving incident.
Accidents while driving can be dangerous and take folks away from their families too soon. Safety on the road can mean life or death for drivers everyday. As the weather warms up, more motorcycles and drivers are on the road. The world suffered another sad loss recently when a man died from his injuries suffered in a motorcycle crash. The Connecticut man and his passenger were both injured in a crash with another vehicle.
