DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. -- While Spring Break crowds are dwindling, the Bike Week revelers are on the rise, says Beach Safety.

"Volusia County Beach Safety flew the red flag today we had no water rescues, " Capt. Mike Berard of Volusia County Beach Safety told Headline Surfer in a daily email alert update summary.

"Spring break crowds have subsided for the time being but are quickly replaced by the bike week crowd and the traffic that comes with them. We closed to vehicle traffic for a few hours in the afternoon due to tide but were able to re-open around 4 p.m."
