Motorcycle fatalities increasing in Brevard County

Jeff Schweers and Sarah Okeson of Florida Today looked at motorcycle fatalities in Brevard County and found that more than twice as many people were killed in 2006 as in 2000, and the county could top that this year. There are now twice as many bikers on Florida highways as there were five years ago. Contributing factors to the fatalities include speed, not wearing a helmet, and drinking.
