City Of Rehoboth Has A Shockingly Harsh Punishment For Anyone Changing In A Bathroom
Before you set out on that weekend getaway to the beach make sure you know the laws of the land. The City of Rehoboth Has A Shockingly Harsh Punishment For Anyone Changing In A Bathroom.
Image it’s a beautiful day in the summer. You decide to take off from work, grab the kids and head down to the beach for the day.
You have a wonderful time building sandcastles, running into the water, and spending some quality time with your family.
The sun is high, everyone’s getting a little cranky and you decide it’s time to hit the road. You pop into a public restroom to make sure everyone is ready for the road trip back up route 1.
It seems like a good idea to get the kids out of their yucky bathing suits and into some dry clothes for the ride.
But wait, you can’t. Did you know it was AGAINST THE LAW?
That’s right. According to the City of Rehoboth, no person shall change his clothing from bathing suit to street clothes or otherwise within the comfort stations maintained by the City. Any violation of this section is declared a civil offense pursuant to Chapter 126 of the Municipal Code of the City of Rehoboth Beach.
Who knew you could actually get a citation for just wanting to be comfortable on a car ride?
Now if you do receive a citation, it’s only $25 but that seems a bit much for just wanting to change out of your bathing suit.
And no, this isn’t some outdated or antiquated law of the past. This particular legislation was amended in 2008.
So next time you consider a day trip to one of our beautiful beaches, make sure you’re prepared. You will have to soak in the salty sogginess of your clothes the whole way home.
You thought that was weird?….
