Immigrants and motorcyclists often face unfair attitudes

For many parts of the world, riding a motorcycle is just as common as driving a car, or more so. Many immigrants who come to the United States are surprised to learn, among other things, that most drivers are still not accustomed to sharing the road with motorcycles. Whereas other parts of the world may have roughly half of their drivers on motorcycles, in the U.S., it is a much smaller percentage. Unfortunately, this means that riding a motorcycle is an innately more dangerous act here than it may be in an immigrant's country of origin.

Riding a motorcycle may be a practical choice in some cultures, whereas in America, it is often equated with an expression of personal liberty. Part of protecting yourself and the ones you love is understanding your rights and obligations as a motorcyclist. If you are traveling out of state, for instance, it is important to know relevant laws about who must wear a helmet on a motorcycle. In Connecticut, riders under the age of 18 must wear a helmet, while those over 18 must wear a helmet until they graduate from a riding permit to a riding license. However, not all states have the same laws, and you are required to know the law in the state in which you are riding.

If you are involved in an accident, you deserve to have your experience fairly evaluated. No matter what has happened, it is important not to admit any fault at the scene of an accident. With the guidance of an experienced attorney who understands the prejudices often expressed towards motorcyclists, you can rest assured that your rights will remain protected while you pursue justice.
