City to the rescue at Seaside Park

City of Fernandina Beach
March 30, 2022

We love parking on the beach as much as anyone else, but just because you CAN doesn’t mean you SHOULD. Four wheel drive and all wheel drive vehicles are required to park on the City beach access, but even then, use good judgement. City crews had to report to Seaside Park last night to tow a semi truck which had gotten stuck.

I would hope that since City resources were used in most likely an “overtime” situation, that the driver was billed a reasonable fee.

My thoughts exactly, Mr. Lott. I don’t think having 10 wheels counts as 4-wheel drive!

I don’t understand why the city was involved at all, as a private towing company should’ve been called in which would have cost well over $1,000. If the city accidentally damaged the tractor, they would have been liable for the damages, so they had no business towing the tractor in the first place. That’s why we have towing companies.

You’ve got to be kidding me. That’s a sleeper cab. Did the driver think the beach was an overnight truck stop? Driver should be subject to monetary fines & long term suspension of operators license. This is totally unacceptable.
