Brick Township will not allow four wheel drive vehicles on its beaches this upcoming off-season, township officials said.
Normally, four wheel drive vehicles, commonly known as beach buggies, are allowed on the oceanfront from Oct. 1 through April 30. But due to ongoing work with the steel wall revetment currently being built and a beach replenishment project that is expected to get underway after the new year, the township council on Tuesday decided to suspend the beach buggy permitting program for the current season.
Officials said they expect the program to be reinstated after the work is complete.
The permits usually cost $35 and entitle the owner of a vehicle to drive on the beach for the purpose of surf fishing.
