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
