New driving rules along Volusia's beaches

    DAYTONA BEACH, FL (AP)- Volusia County is rolling out new rules for driving on the beach, including the creation of several one-way driving zones and some no parking areas.

The rules go into effect Friday in Daytona Beach and other locations along the county's coastline. It's an effort to beef up safety measures along the popular stretch of beaches.

The Daytona Beach News-Journal reports momentum for increased safety measures began in 2010 when two 4-year-olds were killed by vehicles. Some changes -- like discouraging beach cruising -- were implemented immediately. Others have been in the planning stages until now.

Beach Patrol Capt. Tammie Marris says she expects the changing traffic patterns and new rules to make for a busy Easter weekend. She says the patrol will have extra people on hand to help.
