Report Details

Lots of cars and people on the beach today, several speeding close to people. One very sad display of disrespect for our natural resource (and safety of others on the beach) -- a truck dragging a La-Z-Boy type recliner down the beach and in circles at high speed (with children around) then leaving it and speeding away. Got the license and called the cops but they weren't able to catch him in the act so nothing to do unless someone personally wants to press charges.
