Buggy drivers nabbed by Maritime Police in Meia Praia dunes

meiapraiaPesky buggy drivers zapping around the dunes and Meia Praia beach in Lagos have been nabbed by the Maritime Police.

All five drivers can expect heavy fines of between €250 and €2,500 for their illegal activities. They were spotted by a Maritime Police patrol last Thursday, November 23rd.

Driving vehicles, including buggies, or even parking them in dune areas, is strictly prohibited – if not always strictly enforced.

The drivers will be fined and will lose two points from their driving licences as this sort of behaviour comes under the ‘serious’ list in highway code.
