OCEAN CITY, Md. (WJZ) — Ocean City will be designated a Special Event Zone starting October 6 through October 11 during the Endless Summer Cruisin’ event.
The zone establishes reduced speed limits in the zone and increases fines for violations. The city said legislation signed in 2020 allows for increased penalties for specific motor vehicle violations.
Violators will face increased fines or, in some cases, arrest.
The city said citizens should expect to see a large police presence as officers from multiple other agencies will be helping the Ocean City Police Department.
They urge spectators to keep the sidewalks clear for pedestrian traffic and “should not incite the spinning of wheels or ‘burn-outs’ by motorists,”
