Report: Soft Sand will Eventually End Beach Driving in Volusia County, Florida

Soft sand shifting south will eventually mean cars will no longer be able to drive along the beaches in Volusia County. According to the study, ocean levels are rising every year, which means Mother Nature may eventually decide if cars should remain on the beach regardless of what the sand does. The report also states cities with limited beach driving have higher real estate values.

A Challenge to Florida Beach-Driving Tradition

Driving on the beach is a long-standing tradition in many areas of the United States. Questions linger after a 4-year-old girl from the United Kingdom was hit and killed by a car on the sand along Daytona Beach.
