Busted! 7/30/2012

Nothing unusual was afoot in the National Seashore last week.

One violation notice was written for speeding, and one for lack of child restraint.

Thirteen drivers received warnings for being on the beach without ORV permits.  Five were warned to slow it down.

Two dogs roaming on the beach caught the attention of rangers, who warned their owners to keep pets on a leash in the seashore.

One warning was given to a driver who was on the beach between the hours of 9 p.m. and 7 a.m.   Night driving is restricted until September 14.

A visitor who wandered into a nesting area was warned not to violate resource closures.

Fires must be permitted and are allowed only at the lifeguard beach before 9 p.m.  The days of bonfires at the break of the dunes are over.  Two pyrotechnicians were reminded of these rules.

It was a big time in the NPS campground last week.  There were six warnings issued for violations of campground rules.

The Ocracoke District welcomes Ranger Corey Cutright, who began work July 4.
