Video demonstrates why you shouldn’t drink and drive a motorcycle

A camera captures a guy traffic light who’s clearly struggling to stay on his bike. It appears that he’s under the influence of alcohol.

According to the group Mothers Against Drunk Driving, 28 percent of drivers involved in fatal crashes with a BAC level of .08 or higher were on motorcycles. What’s more alarming is that the site also said that every 90 seconds, a person is injured in a drunk driving crash, and on average, 1 in 3 people will be involved in a drunk driving crash in their lifetime.

With the Memorial weekend festivities taking place, we encourage PowerBlock fans to not drink and drive. We want you to be around to show off your awesome projects with us, so be smart and stay safe!

Take a look at the video, and tell us what you think. Leave a comment below, or send us a tweet to @PowerBlockTV.

Crazy bike jump requires parachute

We’ve seen stunts from Red Bull.

We’ve seen stunts from drift racers.

And we’ve seen some interesting stunt choices made by motorcycle riders.

We know that not everyone who rides a bike tries to test their legal limits (as well as physics), but there are some stunts we wouldn’t recommend attempting.

Check out this video of a guy who has to use a parachute for this crazy jump off a cliff.

YouTube video results in warrant for one motorcyclist

We see a good bit of law-breaking on YouTube, and though you see how many people who are watching your videos, you never know exactly who is watching.

A 25-year-old motorcyclist shot a video of himself on a motorcycle going 186 miles an hour (300km/h) on a Canadian highway. After several weeks, police found him and issued a warrant.

According to CNN, the man turned himself in at the Kelowna, British Columbia, police department.

Do you think it’s ok for law enforcement to issue tickets after seeing videos of people breaking the law? Leave a comment below, or send us a tweet to @PowerBlockTV.
