ORV Beach Driving Regulations (UPDATED)
Charles L submitted some information regarding proposed off-road vehicle (ORV) Regulations that are beginning the Negotiated Rulemaking policy dictated by the National Park Service (NPS). This is an important issue for continued future beach driving access privileges. We in the Hatteras windsurfing/wavesailing community are especially keen given that many spots are only accessible via 4WD vehicles. Access to prime wave breaks, our gear, and this time of year, warmth of a vehicle is quite important.
See the following NPS online workbook (note post comment from BOBXNC for how to download and open the file) for detail regarding options and submitting your input on the issue.
