This is why you should not drive on the Beach!

THIS Easter, drivers are being reminded not to drive on the beach after a spate of vehicles have been ignoring signs and driving onto the sands. The latest to vehicle we have spotted stuck was a 4 by 4, which had tried to turn around on the Shrimpers access strip, off the Weld Road section of Southport Beach. Luckily for the driver, the sea was out at the time, but the 4 by 4 had sustained damage and when we photographed it, it was stuck in deep, within the sand. The beach might look safe and you might have a 4 by 4, but in reality, it is no place for a vehicle, unless it’s specifically designed or adapted for that environment. Sefton Rangers have asked us to stress:- “It is an offence to drive on the beach, outside designated areas and those who do so, not only risk being prosecuted, but they also risk their lives and their vehicles! Only authorised vehicles are allowed on the beach, and even they get stuck at times. If your vehicle gets stuck on the beach and the sea comes in, you are very likely not to be insured as well. So please read the signs and keep within the designated parking areas and only when they are open to the public.” Please email our newsrooms with your views on people driving on the beach to:- and let us know what you think about it.
