WILDWOOD, N.J. (CBS) — A driver down the shore learns an important lesson about staying off the sand.

North Wildwood police posted this picture on Facebook of a van stuck in the surf.

Officers wrote, “things to not do on the beach — drive without a permit — and not know what time high tide is.”

They used a front-end loader to fish the van out of the water.
