Cranking up the engine, kicking up the stand, and cruising to their destination is a leisure activity many residents of Waterbury have in common. Motorcycle riding can be a great stress reliever and make travel time to and from work, fun. However, not everyone loves motorcycles. Some automobile drivers act as if motorcycles do not exist at all.

When a vehicle collides with a motorcycle, it can cause devasting injuries because of the opening and small frame of a bike.
