Going to Biketoberfest? (Or live in FL)

Dangerous Motorcycle Stunts To Cost Riders Thousands


TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- A new law will lead to thousand dollar fines for motorcyclists who drive dangerously.

Bikers who perform death-defying stunts on Central Florida roadways or speed at more than 50 miles an hour over the speed limit will get hit with $1,000 fines. If they're caught a second time, the fines increase to $2,500. The third offense results in a $5,000 fine and a 10 year license suspension.

"When they are going 100 to 120 miles an hour, if someone pulls out in front of them, no is going to be able to survive," said Sgt. Kim Miller of the Florida Highway Patrol. "That is going to be a fatality."

Troopers will start enforcing the new state law on Wednesday, two weeks before thousands of bikers head to Central Florida for Biketoberfest.
