Tow the line: Motorists who parked dangerously near popular Wicklow beach hit with fines
Careless motorists who parked illegally near a popular county Wicklow beach rather than pay for the nearby car park ended up forking out hefty fines instead.
A number of motorists were left counting the cost after their vehicles were towed for parking dangerously at Magheramore beach yesterday.
A local Garda spokesperson said: “Despite a car park not more than 50 meters away and costing only €5 per day, these drivers decided to park dangerously and illegally at Magheramore today. It cost the three who got back before the tow wagon a fixed charge penalty notice and one vehicle towed away at a cost far in excess of €5.”
