Motorcyclist seriously injured in Connecticut crash

During the warm months, motorists in Connecticut are used to traveling with motorcyclists on the roadways. While this is a common experience, this does not always mean that drivers are at ease traveling by such a small vehicle.

Motorcycle accident statistics show fewer deaths in Connecticut

Keeping track of the statistics of how often a motorcycle accident occurs can be beneficial when trying to determine how and why they happen and preventing them.

That is an increase of around 450 from the prior year. In Connecticut, however, the number fell to 45 - a decrease of nine.
