Beware of the BB Police Dept. They manage to find ways to make up new parking laws within minutes of your visit! I have received several parking tickets within the last ten years but this last one really put the topping on my cupcake... They now have kiosks at the opening of every parking lot. There are signs that give you instructions as how to park your car and pay the meter. The sign clearly says "Park your car. go to pay kiosk, follow instructions , get your ticket and place it on your dashboard " . Well. If you don't see the cop hiding in the bushes, the sign means NOTHING. One minute after I got out of the car and walked down to end of parking lot to put my money in the machine (which by the way if you don't have quarters, you have to obtain them from the machine next to it) came back to the car, the loser cop had already given me a ticket. When I tried to explain I was only doing EXACTLY what the sign said to do... aka following THEIR instructions, I was told "Take it to court". REALLY?????
Ok, so now... Court is ONLY on Tuesdays. Therefore, if you live 3 hours away and you were only there for the weekend, you need to take the day off work, spend more money in gas and come back on a Tuesday to argue a case in which you were never wrong about in the first place only for them (the court) to tell you , ok, we will lessen the fine by $10.
Well GUESS WHAT BETHANY BEACH..... You will never do this to this person ever again because I will never visit Bethany Beach ever again. Your so called government/police force are thieves. Bandits. You all need to be investigated and I will tell my story to ABC News so more people can be aware of what they're in for before they go.
Im sure I am not the only one this has happened to. Why bother with your marketing tactics? You just want to lure people down there so you can rob them blind.
I AM DONE.
I am heading to the Jersey Beaches next year where people are friendly and appreciate you being there.
