Helmet Law

Florida Statute 316.211 - Equipment for motorcycle and moped riders

Generally speaking, if the vehicle is larger than 50cc’s or generates more than 2 hp and is capable of exceeding 30 mph, then:

1. Operators under 21 years of age must be helmeted and wear protective eyewear.

2. Operators 21 or older are not required to wear a helmet but must wear protective eyewear. (In other words, motorcycle operators, no matter the age, must always wear protective eyewear.)

3. Passengers are bound by the same helmet requirements, but need not wear eye glasses, no matter the age.

4. Persons choosing to ride ‘helmet less’ must have an insurance policy providing at least $10,000 in medical benefits for injuries incurred as a result of a crash while operating or riding on a motorcycle.

History of Bike Week

Perhaps it was the appeal of hard sand, warm winter days and the excitement of that first motorcycle race on the beach, that made Daytona Beach the home of Bike Week. Maybe it was the spirited activities surrounding the event that have kept people keep coming back. Whatever the case, Bike Week has been a tradition since January 24, 1937 - the inaugural running of the Daytona 200.

Noise Ordinances

Recently the Daytona Beach City Commission has passed a noise ordinance and, contrary to what you may have heard, the sky is not falling and everyone who comes to our community will not be cited.

The new law was designed to address the concerns of local residents and visitors as it relates to excessive noise and intrusion into neighborhoods during bike events. The objective of the ordinance is not to affect our law abiding visitors to our community, but target those very few whose actions make it disruptive for other visitors as well.

Noise Ordinance: Generally speaking, referring to the recently adopted noise ordinance of the City, 42-216: “No person occupying any public right-of-way in the City…”, (sitting on a motorcycle on Main Street), “shall operate any noise creating device…” (motorcycle), “for the purpose of drawing attention to the source of the noise.” (ooh’s and aah’s from the crowd). A specific description of this activity is included in the ordinance: “rapid throttle advance (revving) of an internal combustion engine resulting in increased noise from the engine.) This is also known as throttle-jockeying.

Be assured that the Daytona Beach Area will continue to welcome our bike event visitors with open arms and are grateful that they choose to come to our area. The recently passed ordinance has been put in place to make the event more enjoyable for all concerned, residents and visitors alike.

We hope that you enjoy your stay!
