On the beach - Oregon Coast

Here's my 2005 TJ, bought a little over a week ago, enjoying the sun on the Oregon Coast, just north of Seaside. Cool spot to wheel around. This beach is actually a designated state road, with a speed limit and sometimes police radar...

It's 25mph. Which seems about right. Until you come up on a giant hole that some kid dug. Then damn. 25 seems way too fast.

Hi; I know this is an old thread, and I love the photos! The Seaside area is a good place to drive on the beach :-). BUT... Just a quick FYI for people who aren't from Oregon, and may not be aware that the beaches are no longer a public highway, here, effective 1967, when the Beach Bill was enacted to replace the 1913 law that made everything from the extreme low tide to the high tide marks a highway.

Oregon beaches from the Washington border to the California Border are no longer a continuous highway for vehicular traffic.

From Oregon.gov's pages: "Under the Beach Bill enacted in 1967, the public has free and uninterrupted use of the beaches along Oregon´s 362 mile-long coastline. The Beach Bill also directed that the ocean shore be administered as a state recreation area. The Oregon Parks and Recreation Department is charged with the protection and preservation of the recreation, scenic, and natural resource values found on Oregon´s ocean shore."

In addition, you can only drive where it's posted as "allowed" or in certain areas where otherwise not allowed, if you have the proper permit. In other words, the entirety of the Oregon coast beaches is no longer a highway. That was how we originally protected our beaches as a public resource. It was changed in '67 to make it all public land, but not a highway unless vehicular traffic is specifically allowed. If you want to read the LONG parts that apply to non-atv motor vehicles, I have copied and pasted it, here. If you want to know whether a certain portion of beach is open for motor vehicle traffic, you're best off checking county by county in the desired area. Division 24 lays out the rules county by county, when you want to know where it's legal to drive. For instance, here in Lincoln County, there are only 2 access points where you're allowed onto the beach at all in a motor vehicle, and they're only for a few yards in either side of the access point, and they're within a mile of each other in Lincoln City, and nowhere else ....

"736-021-0060 Motor Vehicles and Other Motorized Devices
General Provision:

(1) A person operating a motorized vehicle or device on the ocean shore state recreation area must:
(a) Observe all posted signs, including signs that prohibit the operation of motorized vehicles or devices; and

(c) Poses harm to the beach environment or ocean shore resources, creates a hazard to humans or wildlife, is a nuisance or may become a navigational hazard if washed out to sea.
(10) Vehicle operators must have a valid driver's license in their possession, except at ocean shore state recreation area adjacent to Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area and Sand Lake Recreation Area that are open to ATV use.
(11) A person whose driving privilege has been suspended or revoked may not operate any vehicle on the ocean shore recreation area, including at ocean shore state recreation areas adjacent to the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area and at Sand Lake Recreation Area.
(12) A person may not use any vehicle in western snowy plover-management areas as provided in OAR 736-021-0090."

I know. Long-winded. I just thought this might be of interest to those who aren't familiar with the laws governing the use of motor vehicles on Oregon beaches. Some people may erroneously think that the entire stretch is open highway. It isn't.... Here's the link to the Oregon.gov page, in case you really want to spend a couple hours reading the entire thing! LOL!
