Looks like Currituck N.C. will require a ORV beach driving permit. $50 for a 10 day pass and $150 for an annual pass. They want to reduce traffic on the beach. Guess they figured the federal government can do it down south so they can do it up north.
Its not a beach driving Permit... It is a Parking Permit... You can drive up and down the beach as much as you want because of the developed real estate but no paved roads.
If you drive and park anywhere on the beach to either fish or play with your family and friends its gonna cost you. I don't see how they will be able to enforce it....
I sure wont be driving up there to fish in Carova as I have done in years past. I don't see how they think a yearly beach driving pass up there should cost $150.00, yet a pass for the entire CHNS only costs $125.00
Furthermore I don't think they (county commissioners) took the land owners into consideration, business owners or the residents. I think there will be a great deal of "push back"
Out of town owners get four free permits. Residents get unlimited free permits. Easy to inforce if your parked and no permit- ticket, same with the air down law, if your stuck and a deputy checks your tires and you have over 20 psi - ticket
County Ordinance ... they (LE)don't WRITE tickets anymore , they print them off in thier vehicles, after entering the info on their laptops. Still unenforceable and WILL NOT Alleviate beach traffic, between May and Sept.
