LOS ANGELES (CBS) The Board of Supervisors this week agreed to raise fines for anyone who throws a football or a Frisbee on any beach in Los Angeles County.
In passing the 37-page ordinance on Tuesday, officials sought to outline responsibilities for law enforcement and other public agencies while also providing clarification on beach-goer activities that could potentially disrupt or even injure the public.
According to Lucy Kim, from the LA County Department of Beaches and Harbors, a first-time offender will have to pay a $100 fine. For a second offense, beach-goers will face a $200 fine. Three or more infractions within one year will result in a $500 fine, Kim said.
The updated rules now prohibit any person to cast, toss, throw, kick or roll any object other than a beach ball or volleyball upon or over any beach between Memorial Day and Labor Day.
Your kids could also end up costing you big bucks: the ordinance also prohibits digging any hole deeper than 18 inches into the sand except where permission is granted for film and TV production services only.

I'm thinking I need to dig out my lawn-darts and head to the beach...
But seriously, what brought this about? Have the ERs been full of frisbee related concussion victims or something?
Next time you wave at me, use ALL your fingers.
Money grab. A tax under the false pretext of safety. As safe as I made you by taking my belt off when going through airport security today.

O M G . . .
I'd love to see those 37 pages used to say "Don't throw a football"!
What about the installed and maintained volleyball courts? Is this the end of Beach Volleyball contests?
As for "digging a hole", there was an incident where a boy was buried alive when the coffin-sized hole he was digging collapsed in on him last fall. Fortunately bystanders were able to quickly dig him out.
Repeat after me, "I love my Nanny State"!

Just an LA county thing, which is a good thing 'cause OC has better beaches.
Throw all the footballs & Frisbees you want in the OC!
