Motorcycle Laws

What is a motorcycle?

A motorcycle is a type of vehicle that is two or three wheeled. Motorcycles are designed for many different ways. They are designed for long distance travel, going through heavy traffic areas, cruising, sport, and racing. There are laws that govern the use and safety of the rider.

What is the Illinois statute for motorcycle exhaust noise levels?

Illinois statute 625 ILCS 5/12-602 states: “Sec. 12-602. Mufflers and prevention of noise; Every motor vehicle driven or operated upon the highways of this State shall at all times be equipped with an adequate muffler or exhaust system in constant operation and properly maintained to prevent any excessive or unusual noise. No such muffler or exhaust system shall be equipped with a cutout, bypass or similar device. No person shall modify the exhaust system of a motor vehicle in a manner which will amplify or increase the noise of such vehicle above that emitted by the muffler originally installed on the vehicle, and such original muffler shall comply with all the requirements of this Section.”

With that said, in most cases the noise laws are passed through local levels. Local government may use the state statute as guidelines, but in most cases they have their own set of rules that they go by. The person would need to check with their local government and see what the statute for the noise would be.

What is the legal age in California for a person to ride on the back of a motorcycle?

The state of California generally does not impose an age restriction for a person to ride on the back of the motorcycle. California does have guidelines that they go by. The guidelines are that the person on the back should be able to reach the pegs that are in place for the passenger and wear a safety approved helmet. The statute for the passenger says that the person would need to be on a seat that is securely fastened to the machine behind the driver and that the passenger is to be provided with footrests.

If a person bought a motorcycle for a friend and the agreement was that the friend would make the monthly payments to the person, but has not made any payments, what can the person do to regain the money they spent on the motorcycle?

The person would need to send the friend a certified letter in the mail that confirms the sum that is owed and what exactly the agreement stated. The person would also want to demand immediate payment in regards to the agreement. If the friend does not contact the person, then the person would then need to sue the friend in court and gain a judgment to have the friend repay the loan for the motorcycle and any costs associated with trying to get the money.

If a person was involved in a motorcycle sports event in New Jersey, and was struck by a car that was in the event as well, can the driver of the car sue the person for damages when the participants signed a agreement that they couldn’t sue if a accident occurred?

In the state of New Jersey, the person would need to file a counter claim for Abuse of Process. The person would need to provide the proof that the driver filed the suit with improper motives. If the case is concluded and the defendant wins the judgment, then the person can go and file a malicious prosecution suit.

When a person chooses to own, ride, or even race a motorcycle, they are required to follow certain rules and laws. When a person is dealing with an issue regarding motorcycle law, then there may be confusion regarding what they can and can’t do with the motorcycle. When these questions arise, then the person would need to seek information from an Expert to clear up any confusion

Recent Motorcycle Questions

  • I recently received a letter from the Division of Driver Licenses

    I recently received a letter from the Division of Driver Licenses requesting that I bring to them a list of all the medications that I take. They made an appointment that I am supposed to attend, with my list in hand.
    My question is: Can the State of Florida really coerce me to appear with a list of the medications I take? In the letter telling me to appear, they say they want "to discuss your (my) ability to safely operate a motor vehicle."
    First of all, I have no idea how they know that I take any medications. I have never been pulled over for driving erratically or anything like that. I have never been questioned by any police officer or anyone at the Division of Driver Licenses for substandard driving. I have received three speeding tickets in my life (I'm 64) but none in the past five or six years. I was pulled over for speeding last year, but the officer just gave me a warning. he told me that all I had to do was send proof of insurance to a particular address within 30 days. I looked for my proof of insurance as soon as I arrived home, but I couldn't find it. Unfortunately, I forgot all about it after that. Then I received a letter stating that I owed two hundred and some dollars for not providing my proof. I paid the fine and thought that was the end of the story.
    More than a year later, my husband and I received a notice from our insurance company stating that they could no longer provide insurance for us because both my husband's and my license had been suspended! Of course, we were both shocked by that because neither of us knew that we had been driving on suspended licenses. We gathered up all the insurance information we had and went to the Driver License place. Unfortunately, we did not have the exact information the clerk wanted. I called my insurance agent while standing next to the clerk. Then he talked to the clerk to find out exactly what she needed. He then faxed the information to her, but she was not satisfied with what he faxed. This scenario played out a couple more times, but the clerk was never satisfied. All this back and forth took more than three hours on a Friday afternoon. Then the place closed, so I had to go back on Monday morning.
    Just before we left, I noticed a computer by the back door that invited customers to write comments regarding their visit that day. That was an opportunity I just could not pass up. I wrote a scathing comment about the shabby way we were treated by the clerk and how she had withheld information (that could have helped us) until the end of our visit. I did not identify her or myself. My husband thinks that someone figured out who I was and who she was from my comment. But that place was really crowded that day, and I can't believe that I was the only one to write a comment. I guess it's possible that mine was the only comment, but how would anyone connect it with me? (I just had a thought. Maybe they have a camera trained on the "comment computer.")
    Before I went back on Monday morning, I drove to my insurance agency and personally picked up the information we believed the clerk finally wanted. When I took that information in to the driving place, the driver license people were satisfied. My husband and I both paid a fine to reinstate our licenses and assumed that was the end of our troubles.
    My husband believes that the Division of Driver Licenses is now asking for the medication I take because of my scathing comments. I find that really difficult to believe but not impossible to believe. If that is the impetus for their request, wouldn't that be unfair since they did invite me to comment anonymously. Anyway, whether that is what caused them to ask for my list of medications or it is something else, can they legally do that?
    I certainly want to obey the law, but I find this request extremely intrusive. As long as I am driving safely (with medications in me), do they have a right to know what I take? It's not that I am ashamed of the medications I take or that I would never reveal that information to someone else, but my question concerns their ability to force me to comply. It makes me think that Big Brother is getting a little too nosy.
  • I was diagnosed with terminal liver cancer in 2006. I am still alive & still need a dr

    I was diagnosed with terminal liver cancer in 2006. I am still alive & still need a dr. but my dr. who I have only seen 1 time bc my dr. for years retired, and this new dr. was very negative to me & told me that due to my tumor markers being so high the cancer could spread & I knew what was going to happen! I work very hard @ keeping myself alive & immune system as good as possible to fight the cancer. I also broke 4 vertebrae in lumbar & thoracic spine while receiving chemo in 2009. I have taken pain meds as need since then but bc I tested positive for pot she refused pain mds. which I have been dealing with but when I called for refill for anxiety meds. it was refused I called clinic to find out why & I was informed that the dr. had fired me as pt. meaning I could not see anyone from Christus Spohn Health system which is all there is here for Medicaid What do I do!! It seems so totally unethical!!
  • I accepted 2 checks totaling $850 from an person I thought

    I accepted 2 checks totaling $850 from an person I thought I could trust on November 15 and 17th. I found out on November 20 both checks were drawn on closed account. One of the accounts was closed since Oct 29, 2014. I have been in contact with this person and he has repeatedly lied on saying he was going to meet me with the I am almost there game everyday from 7:30am-1am. My checking account is in the negative and I have not been able to buy food, personal items, gas, or have a Thanksgiving meal since this happened back on November 20th. As of today he owes me $996 and will be having a $10 late fee for my utility bill and a late fee for my car payment because funds I had available has been taken by his actions. I don't know what to do to resolve this.
