A Brief Safety Message in Honor of Volusia County’s Bike Week

By Orlando Personal Injury Attorney on March 16, 2020

The kick off to the extremely popular Daytona Bike Week took place over this past weekend, on Friday the 6th to be precise, and people from around the state and even the country rushed to Daytona to show off their hogs and their choppers, compare leather gear, and generally make themselves seen throughout the week in a city-wide celebration of motorcycles and their riders. This year marks the 79th annual celebration of the event, and, as it becomes increasingly popular each progressive year it continues, organizers are expecting upwards of 500,000 individuals to attend the event.

The Daytona Beach Police Chief, Craig Capri, has spoken to reporters about the event. His pleasure at being there to look over the many bikers as they speed up and down the road was apparent even in his terse public statement. He spoke of the benefit to the community as these bikers purchase goods at local businesses and stay at local hotels. He ended his statement with a gentle word of caution, reminding bikers that as long as they obey the law and don’t cause problems, they can count on having a splendid Bike Week.

Unfortunately, each year Bike Week is less than a joyous revel for some of the individuals involved. Because it is such a wildly popular event among bikers, it is only to be expected that this congregation of fast-moving vehicles means that some people will get injured. Each year, dozens of Bike Week participants are hurt or worse as a result of motorcycle accidents. These accidents are sometimes the fault of the bikers, sometimes the fault of other motorists, and sometimes it is difficult to know who exactly caused the incident. Nevertheless, it is a fact that a higher concentration of motorcycles and the like will likely result in a higher degree of accident and injury.

Bike Week lasts until March 15th, meaning that we are currently in the middle of the event. We encourage all participants in Bike Week to remain alert, cautious, and safe while they are out there revving their engines. Nothing spoils a holiday in quite the same way as a traumatic injury.
