Motorcycle Insurance Requirements in Connecticut
Generally speaking, to operate a vehicle on public roadways, it’s necessary to have auto/motorcycle insurance. This insurance will protect not just policy owners, but also their passengers, other drivers on the road, and pedestrians, among other parties. Connecticut requires that motorcycle and automobile owners take out insurance that meets certain minimums.
Connecticut's minimum mandatory insurance minimums for motorcycles:
- $25,000 per person in bodily injury coverage
- $50,000 per accident for total bodily injury liability
- $25,000 per accident for property damage liability
- $25,000 per person, $50,000 per accident for uninsured and underinsured drivers
Of course, many motorcycle riders take out more extensive coverage. For one, $25,000 is not particularly much given how expensive medical care is. If someone gets hurt, they may incur more expensive treatment.
Other Popular Types of Coverage
Motorcycle operators can expand insurance to cover many things, including but not limited to:
- Collision: Protects the bike itself in the event of an accident.
- Comprehensive: Protection from theft, weather, and the like.
- Roadside assistance: Help during breakdowns and the like.
