Massachusetts motorcycle riders have certain rights on the road, many of which are the same as any other motorist.

Grandparents play a unique role in the raising of children, sometimes even taking over as surrogate parents if the parents are unavailable or deceased. In many cases, grandparents don’t realize that they have legal recourse for both financial aid and visitation rights – but they do.
