Daytona Bike Week
During a Daytona Beach Week festival where 500,000 bikes converge it is likely that the number of accidents, injuries and death will increase. However credit should be given to the Daytona Beach/Volusia County law enforcement agencies for planning ahead to slow down traffic and make pedestrian crosswalks in congested areas such as the Iron Horse Saloon and Destination Daytona to reduce the risk to bikers and pedestrians alike. In 2006, Twenty-six deaths were reported and 2009 we only had seven deaths reported. Bike Week in Florida has become a national event, and with the large number of motorcycles in the area at one time, accident rates go up. Many accidents during Daytona Bike Week occur because of inexperienced or impaired drivers, and many others occur because of negligent drivers. With many motorcyclists in one place at one time, there have also been incidents of collisions with each other.
For motorcyclists planning to attend Bike Week in Florida, extra precautions should be taken since many other bikers will be on the road. Motorcyclists should always wear protective helmets, obey traffic laws, keep a sharp eye to their surroundings, and be wary of other drivers who may not see them. Drivers of motorbikes should also make sure to take out uninsured motorist insurance in order to protect their finances in the event of an accident with an uninsured or underinsured driver.
