If you ride a motorcycle in Minnesota, you know a thrill and a joy that people in passenger cars can never experience. At the same time, you face a level of risk that is also not shared by people in other vehicles. Sadly, many of these risks are due to the negligence of other drivers. Sometimes a motorcyclist is not seen by a car and other times the driver of a vehicle may disregard a motorcycle due to its smaller size. Whatever the reason, the biker can be very vulnerable to serious injuries or even death when colliding with another vehicle.
For many Minnesota residents, the sheer sight of flashing lights in a rear-view mirror for a minor traffic infraction can be scary enough. When interactions with police involve potentially more serious situations, it is understandable that you can be very scared and unsure of what you can or should do - or what you should not do. Knowing your rights at this time is an important way of staying protected through a very uncertain experience.
