VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) – Don’t do this. People were spotted driving along the Virginia Beach Oceanfront Boardwalk Friday afternoon as Hurricane Dorian was passing through the area.
A Facebook post by the city stated: “SPREAD THE WORD. VBPD is reporting that people are driving their cars on the Boardwalk. Be advised this is both dangerous and ILLEGAL.”
Police are out issuing tickets. In fact, one of the images from the city showed an officer approaching a truck on the Boardwalk.
City officials are advising people to not go out in the storm if at all possible.
People can access the beaches, but there is no swimming, surfing or wading permitted during the storm conditions.
They ended the post saying “Don’t end up like the Jeep in South Carolina…” in reference to a Jeep that got washed out into the water in Myrtle Beach.
