Passenger safety on board motorcycles

When asked to go for a ride on someone else's motorcycle, many residents of Massachusetts might think twice, particularly if they are not experienced motorcyclists themselves.

Staying safe on and around motorcycles is everyone's responsibility, from passengers to operators to other drivers on the road.

Motorcycle accidents likely to occur in certain common situations


Driving defensively is something that is immensely helpful to a variety of travelers. This includes everyday commuters, truck drivers and motorcyclists.

In addition to being a lawful driver, there are extra steps one can take to avoid dangerous and often deadly collisions with motorcycles.

Safety tips from Massachusetts' Motorcycle Manual


Individuals who desire to own and ride a motorcycle in the state of Massachusetts must obtain a special license from the state. Prospective bikers must first obtain a Class M learner's permit from the Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles, then they can obtain a Class M license. Interestingly, one does not need to have a Class D driver's license - the "regular" driver's license most residents likely already have - in order to obtain a Class M license and lawfully ride motorcycles.
