Businesses are preparing for an upcoming motorcycle rally in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. The Spring Myrtle Beach Harley Davidson “Cruisin’ the Coast” rally is adding more entertainment in hopes to attract more visitors to the area. The festival will start on May 10 and run through May 19. This year will include a 90-mile bike ride across the grand strand. Because of the projected increase in revenue, many businesses are excited about the upcoming rally.
But not everyone is excited about the increase in motorcycle traffic. Many residents and other businesses are not looking forward to the noise and rowdiness the large crowd brings. Myrtle Beach used to be one of the most popular rally points for the spring bike weeks, but it has not hosted a rally in years. Attendance peaked about 10 years ago, when the Myrtle Beach City Council took a series of measures to crack down on noise and public drunkenness problems. Because of the measures, the attendance of the rally has slowly declined each year.
During rallies like these, motorcyclists need to be extra careful when taking to the road. The increase in motorcycle traffic increases the risk for fatal motorcycle accidents. If you or a loved one has been involved in a motorcycle accident, then you may be entitled to compensation.
