Four students from the University of Fort Hare, who illegally drove a 4X4 on Nahoon Beach in East London, were caught red-handed when the vehicle got stuck in sand.

The driver of the vehicle, who borrowed it from a relative, was given a R2 000 fine for the infringement. He also admitted to being aware that beach driving without a permit was forbidden.

Legislation that prohibits vehicular access to beaches was introduced to limit the amount of damage caused by vehicles to the coastal ecosystem. Continuous vehicular traffic negatively affects sediment dynamics on beaches leading to erosion, and also stresses the fauna and flora that live in the area.
