“Old” motorcycles not allowed on roads in January

In the upper Midwest, during the winter months – especially during January and February – motorcyclists may experience a dreaded phenomenon called, “The Thaw,” according to Ultimate Motorcycling.

This phenomenon occurs when unseasonably warm weather begins melting the snow brought forth by the winter, making roads slick with wet ice. This makes it harder for motorcyclists to gauge how to safely travel on roads.

To prevent dangerous accidents, Wisconsin motorcyclists are prevented from using their 20-year-old motorcycles – those that qualify for special license plates – along state roads in January. These bikes, which are usually tagged with distinctive sky-blue plates that stay “Collector” must be kept inside people’s garages, a law that probably does Wisconsin residents a lot of good.

If you or someone you love has been injured in a motorcycle accident in Wisconsin, call our attorneys at Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. by dialing 800-242-2874 today, and we may help you in your pursuit of a personal injury claim.
