Riding a motorcycle while drunk

Often, when people hear of drunk driving, they think of someone operating a vehicle such as a car or truck. However, there are other types of vehicles that people operate while they are under the influence of alcohol and drugs, such as a scooter or a motorcycle. When motorcyclists are drunk, their safety is particularly threatened and they not only put their own life on the line but pose serious risks to others who are on the road. Sadly, motorcyclists in Connecticut and across the U.S. continue to ride while they are inebriated.

How can drivers stay safe while pulling a trailer?

There are many different reasons why drivers need to pull trailers. Some may bring their boat to or from a body of water, while others may need to haul material or equipment for work or move furniture. Some drivers may be very experienced when it comes to pulling a trailer, while others may be driving with a trailer for the first time. Either way, it can be dangerous to drive with a trailer and there are many ways in which accidents can happen, which highlights the importance of reviewing safety tips.

Are bikers more likely to be hurt than motor vehicle occupants?

On the road, anyone who is involved in a collision faces serious risks, such as becoming hurt or even losing their life. However, some people, such as pedestrians and bicyclists, may be especially vulnerable in this regard. If you ride a bicycle to work, or just for fun or to get some exercise, it is critical to be aware of the threats that you face and do what you can to avoid a crash. Likewise, the drivers of all vehicles should look out for bicyclists at all times.
