Sharks are not the only concerns that NJ beach-goers should have. Beach regulations are making changes and it can negatively affect your trip down to the shore.
There are many beaches that are changing public access rules, like increasing the price for example. Another nuissance could be finding parking as close as to the beach. It may not be as easy as you remember. Some beaches are starting to enforce strict parking rules by requiring meter parkings. Be prepared to read signs twice before finding your parking spots. Make sure that you aren't blocking any driveways if you are parking in a residential area. If a sign says "2 Hour Parking Only," then you must move your car into another parking spot immediately. If you receive a ticket from the paid parking meter, read the back for specific directions. Police officers can easily get victims through vague wording. Parking fines range from different towns, but try your best to avoid it. Check out the links below for parking rules at different beaches:
