Motorcycle incident reporting during ROT Rally weekend

Austin, TX - The Republic of Texas (ROT) Biker Rally is the largest "turnstile" motorcycle rally in the USA and one of the most highly-anticipated motorcycle events in the entire country. Thousands of motorcycle enthusiasts flock to Central Texas to enjoy amazing motorcycles, Austin nightlife and the beautiful Texas Hill Country.

For over ten years the City of Austin has joined in the ROT Biker Rally action by closing off 50 blocks of downtown Austin for a huge motorcycle parade and party on Congress Avenue the Friday night of Rally weekend.

Austin-Travis County EMS will begin incident reporting for the ROT Biker Rally weekend beginning on Friday, June 10, 2016. Each day the reporting period will run for 24 hours and will summarize all motorcycle incidents EMS responded to during the previous 24-hour time period.

A detailed, interactive, map of Austin and Travis County motorcycle incidents will accompany the summary.  In addition, the Austin-Travis County EMS Twitter account @ATCEMS will provide details and links to interactive maps throughout the weekend.
