19 Oct Arizona Motorcycle Laws (Part 2)
Picking up from Arizona Motorcycle Laws (Part 1), the following provides some further requirements that motorcycle riders must abide by when riding in the state of Arizona. In addition to required safety equipment and riding rules, Arizona motorcycle laws also lay out:
- Required features of the motorcycle:
- Motorcycles carrying passengers must be equipped with a seat for the passenger, as well as footrests for the passenger (and there is no age restriction on passengers).
- All motorcycles must be equipped with mufflers that have not been cutout or bypassed and that meet the stipulations of the law’s maximum noise limits.
- Motorcycles must be equipped with both a left and right mirror.
- Handlebars for motorcycles must be at a height whereby the rider’s hands are not above shoulder level when the rider is sitting on the motorcycle.
- Motorcycles do not have to be equipped with turn signals.
- Other requirements:
- Annual emissions inspections of motorcycles are legally required in certain counties in Arizona.
- Motorcycle riders are required to carry compulsory liability insurance, with the minimum limits of 15:30:10.
- Motorcycle endorsements and RiderEd completion cards from other states are accepted by the Arizona Department of Motor Vehicles.
It’s important to point out that these Arizona motorcycle laws are frequently updated and regularly changing, so riders should be sure to be aware of the latest changes to these laws in order to avoid potentially costly fines and to ensure they are always riding as safely as possible. Safe riding, as well as experience riding defensively, are paramount to reducing the risk of motorcycle accidents.
