DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (WKRG/BIKER DAD) — Move over “Dukes of Hazzard,” there’s a new bridge jumper in town. Video posted to Twitter by the Chief of Police of Daytona Beach appears to show a biker on a motorcycle jumping a rising draw bridge during Daytona Bike Week.
“This is the Main Street draw bridge. The Bike Week “shenanigans” have officially commenced! Folks, please be safe and be smarter than this guy” Chief Jakari Young posted along with the video showing the motorcycling flying over the widening gap in the draw bridge.
- 4 people seriously hurt after crash involving several motorcycles on I-264 in Virginia Beach
- 29-year-old Alabama biker dies after hitting tree
- Bikers for Christ blesses motorcyclists
- Biker cop masks up as Captain American to encourage kids to stay safe
- BIKER DAD REPORT: Alabama bills impact bikers; the ‘Dukes of Daytona’ strike again with another wild jump at a draw bridge
After a debate about whether the event should be held at all, the city realized bikers would show with or without their blessing and put COVID-19 precautions into place including limits on business capacity and masks indoors. No masks are required outdoors.
