a one-wheeled device attached to the side of a motorcycle, scooter, or bicycle

A sidecar is a small, one-wheeled vehicle that attaches to the side of a motorcycle. This allows one or two additional passengers to be carried in the vehicle. The sidecar's wheel is not in line with any of the motorcycle's wheels.
