Georgia Law of Motorcycle Prohibition on linking with Motorcycle (O.C.G.A. § 40-6-313)

Legal Commentary. This Georgia law is very clear that no person, operator or passenger, on a motorcycle can lawfully attach himself or herself to another other vehicle on the roadway and no person may attach a motorcycle to another vehicle lawfully. For clarification purposes, this Georgia statute does not state whether this includes a motorcycle from being towed in a trailer attached to the back of a truck. Likely it will not as the trailer will be attached to the truck and the motorcycle will be carried, not attached, to the trailer.
