Daytona Beach Shores, FL - Memories of last month's truck meet is prompting a warning from Daytona Beach Shores Public Safety on Facebook. In capital letters, "X NO PARKING LOT PARTIES. ZERO TOLERANCE!
DBSPS says they are receiving plenty of messages from residents about the upcoming, unsanctioned event. They say Trucktoberfest attendees should know that since the event is not sanctioned, there is no authorized location to gather for the event.
Last month's event over Labor Day weekend resulted in multiple arrests, traffic stops, and citations. That event was sanctioned.
Many businesses in Daytona Beach Shores have already signed trespass authorization forms with DBSPS. This includes the Winn Dixie parking lot on South Atlantic Avenue. Officers have the authority to trespass anyone from these private properties. They reiterate, there will be zero tolerance.
DBSPS says they know that many coming to the event condemn these behaviors and that's appreciated. They ask for those attendees to encourage other participants to follow the laws and ordinances.
