You have arrogantly disregarded a local law. "The usual ticket", it sounds like this is not your first ticket for this violation. Have you any respect for the law?
On our Gulf of Mexico beaches we have laws covering what, where and when things may be left on the beach. I can leave my boat on the beach during the daytime but at night when the turtles are active on the beach it must be pulled up on the dune so not to interfere with their egg laying and hatching.
You should learn and follow the local laws and customs.
More importantly, you have pissed off the people that have an organized lobby for protecting "their" turtles from "our" boats. The volunteer that sees the torn up ticket he will tell the rest of the Turtle Patrol of the "clown" from Oklahoma and the torn up ticket. Now 50 turtle people will think that beachcat people are bad and not worthy of using "their" beach. When they complain to the local authorities, all of a sudden a new law appears that further resticts our access to the beach.
If you go back next year, before you put the boat on the beach get up early and look for the turtle patrol. Politely ask him where you may leave your boat, apologise for your past behavior and ask if you may pay the ticket.
