As the spring arrives, more people will be heading out on their motorcycles in Connecticut.

A brief refresher on CT's dram shop laws

With St. Patrick's Day just around the corner, Connecticut bartenders and their owners should brush up on their knowledge of the state's dram shop laws, as doing so can keep them from assuming liability for an intoxicated person's harmful actions. According to Law.com, the Dram Shop Act is a case law which 38 states have adopted. The act makes it so any business that sells alcoholic beverages, or any host who serves alcoholic drinks, to a person who is obviously intoxicated or close to it, is strictly liable for any harms the intoxicated person causes.

When do you need a rabies vaccine?

It is not common for people in Connecticut to contract rabies; in fact, it is very rare for human beings in the United States become infected with it at all.

The vaccine protects you from contracting the disease in the event of potential exposure. However, not every animal bite carries a risk of exposure, so in some cases, the vaccine is not necessary.
