BOYNTON BEACH, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — A large rally to honor the teen who drove into a median and then a street sign while recklessly operating a dirt bike in Boynton Beach is expected this afternoon on Federal Highway. Police are warning the public to stay away, as the department expects a large crowd with illegal use of motorbikes and ATVs on public road.
From Boynton Beach Police: “As our community continues to mourn the young man who passed away in Sunday’s crash, we have been made aware of a planned gathering tomorrow at 2 p.m. at the Chevron gas station at 217 N. Federal Highway.
The gathering is being advertised on social media as a walk and ride, specifically inviting off-road vehicles that are prohibited from use on public roadways according to Florida law.
“We know how important this gathering is for our community’s path to healing,” Boynton Beach Police Chief Michael Gregory said. “We are asking that those who participate honor and remember this young man safely.”
We will be monitoring the roadways for unsafe activity, and we will issue traffic citations for egregious conduct and/or dangerous vehicle operations.
We encourage motorists to avoid North Federal Highway at Boynton Beach Boulevard and use either Seacrest Boulevard to the west or A1A to the east during this time.”
