Motorcycle accidents often linked to speeding and impairment

Figures from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration suggest that motorcyclists around the country were 29 times more likely to lose their lives in accidents than passenger vehicle occupants, and more than 4,500 riders were killed in motor vehicle crashes in 2015 according to the federal safety agency. While road safety advocates may applaud Connecticut lawmakers for mandating insurance discounts for riders who have completed approved motorcycle training courses, they could also criticize them for not passing a comprehensive helmet law.

How to drive safely around motorcycles

With all the beautiful roadways in Connecticut, motorcycle riding can be quite enjoyable. However, motorcyclists have to be especially vigilant when traveling with other vehicles. At the same time, automobile drivers have a responsibility to be on the lookout for motorcyclists as well.

Defensive riding techniques boost safety for motorcyclists

Motorcyclists on Connecticut roadways can employ some strategies to reduce their chances of being in an accident. These methods, known collectively as defensive riding, allow riders to proactively watch out for dangerous situations and avoid them whenever possible.
