Have the DPW make more lanes for parking at all beaches or town should not sell beach stickers at $40 a pop!

How about a little monitoring of the boat trailer parking lot at whites landing . People park their cars in all sorts of crazy position and make it almost impossible to either park a trailer or drive out to pick up the our boats

Prayers that everyone is okay 🙏🏼

I don’t understand why people “laugh” at these terrible situations. Hope they are okay! Great work to FFRD and FPD 💪🏼♥️

very sad no matter. our offices are safe

I live right on Maravista and cars speed down that road. Unfortunately the end comes pretty quickly if you're doing this! Thank goodness there hadn't been a car coming down Menhaunt Road at the same time!

I’ll have to try that next summer when I come up for the Fourth of July! Did they at least have a town sticker??

Thank God nobody was in the beach!

Just want to give a huge shout out for all the locals keeping the entrances to the tunnel secret they try but they still can't find them

Bucklers to the rescue!

Hope the person is ok !🙏🏼

Hope they are ok.

Maybe stop lights, or flashing lights at the end of maravista, and here would be a good idea. Bring more awareness to the fact that the road ends...

I've lived her 62 years and never seen anyone do that there.

Somebody missed the turn for Maravista I see. 😂

I don't really understand how they could get through the sand on the beach with out noticing....sober.

I dont see any humor in this, what if it was ur ppl, ppl have died there obviously so I see this not funny at all, I ust pray everyone is ok 🙏

I believe there’s a stop sign at the end of Mill Rd I guess they missed it while looking for the tunnel to MV

Awww, All Cape towing couldn’t get it out? Big surprise

And this is why I did not want to go over by Surf Drive to bike path late last night looking for a dog.

Probably just looking for the bridge to Vineyard Haven.

My cousin died that way 9 years ago the end of maravista that's why they have it blocked I don't think it's funny

Well, after all, stop signs are optional in Falmouth.

We used to drive to the beach and just watch the submarine races. This generation is trying to race the submarines.

Is there a reason why there are not flashing red/yellow at the end of the roads that T to the beach? Is it because it ruins the atmosphere of the area? Just curious? This seems to happen too often.

Simply don't drive under the influence end of story.
