[ARCHIVED] Special Event Zone in effect on beachside this weekend

WEB_Truck Meet_DBPD_June 8 2022

The Homestead Miami Speedway is hosting the rebranded Florida Truck Meet this weekend, June 10-12. While a large percentage of truck enthusiasts will be in South Florida for the three-day event, Daytona Beach Police are anticipating some will arrive here. Truckers are welcome in Daytona Beach, but they are also expected to respect our community. Burnouts, loud horns and music, driving through residential neighborhoods and disruptive behavior will not be tolerated. 

In anticipation of potential traffic congestion and disruption, Sheriff Mike Chitwood has designated a special event zone where many traffic fines will be doubled and vehicles may be towed for both criminal and non-criminal violations. Florida’s recently enacted law targets non-permitted events and allows the designation of an area with enhanced fines for non-criminal traffic violations. Vehicles may be towed and impounded for up to 72 hours. The special event zone includes the peninsula from Plaza Boulevard in Daytona Beach to Dunlawton Avenue in Port Orange. The zone will be in effect as long as is reasonably necessary to ensure public safety and welfare.
