If you are one of the many residents in New Jersey who loves the freedom and feeling that comes with riding a motorcycle, you are no doubt eagerly awaiting the return of spring when the weather makes riding a bike more enjoyable. However, you should also be aware that you face a lot of risks sharing the road with other vehicles. Drivers of passenger vehicles do not always look for motorcyclists and that may contribute to some accidents.

If you are one of the many people in New Jersey who is starting off the new year with a split from your spouse, you will want to educate yourself about the new tax laws that just went into effect at the start of January.

While outwardly confusing, these two legal principles actually complement each other.
