VOLUSIA COUNTY, Fla. - This weekend is expected to be one of the busiest of the year on Volusia County's beaches, so officials are warning
beachgoers about soft sand, ramp closures and safety concerns.
"It don't bother me because, for one, people drive respectfully and they pay attention to what they're doing. Nobody gets down here to try to pretend like they're on the race track," said tourist Christopher Davis.
Officials said there have been two drownings off
The surf this weekend is expected to be calm, and officials said they expect at least three beach ramps to be closed by noon Saturday due to crowds.
Daily beach passes are $5.
Beach safety officials are asking parents to watch their children and for drivers to come early to avoid getting turned away at the tolls.
