The 79th annual Bike Week 2020 saw an increase in fatalities compared to 2019. A total of 6 people were killed in Volusia County during the 2020 Bike Week that ran from March 6-March 15, 2020, right before the coronavirus pandemic placed most of the world on lockdown. The 2019 Bike Week only had one reported fatality.
Bike Week in Volusia County has become a popular destination for bikers all over the world. The festival usually brings about 500,000 bikes to the area, so it is expected to see a rise in accidents, injuries, and even deaths. A good amount of these accidents during Bike Week can be attributed to inexperienced, impaired, and even negligent drivers. This is why it is always important for bikers to obey traffic laws, wear a helmet and other protective gear, keep an eye out for their surroundings, and pay special attention to drivers who may not see them.
