And it’s not just Frisbees (and footballs) you need to watch out for: You better keep an eye on your kids’ shovels and pails as well. According to the restrictions, no person may dig a hole in the sand deeper than 18 inches, except when permission is given for film and TV production purposes.

 

Heading to an LA beach this summer? Better leave the footballs and Frisbees at home.

The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors on Tuesday agreed to raise the fine for playing ball on the beach to $1,000.

In a 37-page ordinance, the county board specified precisely what is and is not allowed on LA beaches during the summertime — and any object other than a beach ball or volleyball is out, KCBS-TV reported. Throwing a football or a Frisbee was already considered illegal beach activity, but the board’s move upped the fine for violations to a whopping $1,000.

“It is unlawful for any person to cast, toss, throw, kick or roll any ball, tube, or any light object other than a beach ball or beach volleyball upon or over any beach” between Memorial Day and Labor Day, the ordinance states.

Exceptions to the rule allow for ball-playing only in designated areas or if a person obtains a permit beforehand. Playing with a water polo ball is still allowed, as long as it’s in the ocean.

The ball-playing restrictions won’t be enforced in the off-season between September and May.

And it’s not just Frisbees you need to watch out for: You better keep an eye on your kids’ shovels and pails as well. According to the restrictions, no person may dig a hole in the sand deeper than 18 inches, except when permission is given for film and TV production purposes.
