Alcohol and bikers prove to be a lethal mixture in Volusia County each year during Bike Week and Biketoberfest. Around 25% of Florida’s fatal alcohol related motorcycle crashes in recent years have occurred during Bike Week and Biketoberfest. Head injuries are more likely to prove deadly if the victim is intoxicated which adds yet another dimension to the harmful realities of alcohol consumption and motorcycling.
According to a report by the National Highway and Traffice Safety Administration, drinking related deaths in motorcycle crashes have surged among older motorcyclists. Of the 1,264 bikers killed in 2004, alcohol was involved in a large percentage of motorcycle accidents involving bikers between 30 and 49 years of age. There have already been six fatalities during Bike Week this year, and last year, 21 died during the 10 day celebration.
