DAYTONA, Fla. (AP) - Some Daytona bikers are urging businesses to get rid of policies that prohibit them from wearing patches on their jackets and other gear.
About 100 bikers rallied in Daytona on Saturday to encourage changing the policies created to deter biker gangs.
Biker Bobby Colella told the Dayton Beach News-Journal that he should be allowed to wear his "Bikers for Christ" patch.
There is no law banning bikers from wearing specific colors or patches, but private businesses can enforce dress codes.
Daytona Beach Police Chief Mike Chitwood says police encourage businesses to enforce anti-gang policies. Chitwood says the area hasn't had a major incident involving biker gangs in years and part of the reason is that local businesses prohibit bikers from wearing items that display their affiliations with various groups.
