On April 21, 2009, the National Park Service began the installation of new off-road vehicle (ORV) information signs at beach access ramps in accordance with paragraph 29 of the court ordered consent decree.  The first signs were installed at Ramp 43 on Hatteras Island and additional signs for all ramps are scheduled for installation.


The signs will provide the visiting public with information on beach driving, traffic rules and regulations, posted speed limits, applicable dates for night driving, beach regulations for prohibited activities, and recommended tire pressure.
