Motorcycle related deaths for either 2010 or 2011 are incorrect. the report written by the Daytona beach news journal for one of those years is 13. 10 accidents were caused by motorcycles crashing into motorcycles. 1 involved a lone motorcycle cause by D.U.I. [no one else involved] 1 involved a motorcycle attempting to pass an SUV illegally on I95 near LPGA where the SUV flipped. 1 involved a motorcycle and a bicycle [on Nova Rd.] Where the motorcycle rider was found to be at fault.

No one that drives a car among the herds of bikers should forget the crowd mentality that took a driver out of his car for a beat down in NYC. There are drunks here now that forget that they do not own the road. They may be old and fat but they still can create a bad atmosphere.
The "Watch for Bikers" phrase is because they think they are special and need taken care of more than any one else on the road. They cannot protect themselves any longer with defensive driving because they are drunk, old and slow to react.
When people mention all the money the bikers bring in, I wonder who gets the benefit. The Cabbage Patch is still a dump after all the millions of dollars brought in over the years. I can't see one upgrade to the community that bikers have brought in. Bikers should have to wear a strobe light on a helmet to alert us that a possible drunk is coming down the road.

The rest of the year is spent reminding residents that Volusia County is there to benefit the sense of entitlement to bikers. The raid on Sharks Lounge was a problem that disappeared, drug issues and warrants are written by Judge Joseph Will. The corrupt judge that would allow for the raid of the Heritage Inn owned by Pravin Pm. Patel who would escape the law for running a meth lab, and become a member of the Halifax Advertising authority [a slush fund organization of the city commission. Patel became a member thru Joyce Cusack. The bed tax has become a criminal empire the remainder of the year for prostitutes and junkies. When they are arrested the money used to get them out is dirty money that goes thru the court system becomes laundered and starts over. Out of town vendors use the same method. Reports of beatings by former city officials and a record 20 death related accidents does not stop this. Yeah but how many cars caused the accident a frequent question shows that entitlement that cars are not welcome. It is possible that cars involved are not the truth. Because of that favoritism. Theresa Doan still benefits from the misfortune of others. Vendors are criminals for leaving town. Doan did not benefit from the Criswell incident. That was the move from Main Street to a more active beach street making it seem like less of a problem for Theresa Doan. This is nothing but evil.

The ideas become effective. 1 man in Daytona Highlands was opposed to the idea of building a shopping center on I.S.B. near Tuskawilla. No one else protested no one else was even there, and no one had any way of knowing if the man lived in that area because Wesh2 news reported from I.S.B. near Mainland High School. He would go as far as to complain about going to the commission to stop it. An admission of guilt to show how corrupt the man was. It was about protecting the idea of building anything that wasn't already connected to the France Family. Or anything that would stop the Speedway from showing a profit.
