Car Enthusiasts Looking to Return to OC for Another Cruising Event

Posted: Updated:

OCEAN CITY, Md. - The past weekend was an unruly one in Ocean City, with large crowds and car enthusiasts wreaking havoc on the streets. Now, the same group of unaffiliated H2Oi drivers say they plan to return to Ocean City in 10 days to take part in another cruising event.

Endless Summer Cruisin' rolls into Ocean City on Oct. 10. If those H2Oi drivers do in fact crash the party, some people have their own ideas on how to handle bad behavior and police say they're listening. 

On Monday, Ocean City's police chief said the town is looking at ways to deter bad behavior, such as increasing fines for certain road violations. 

"Not one measure we introduce is going to be a remedy for this," Chief Ross Buzzoro said. "But if we introduce enough measures, it will certainly give us a better handle on what we're facing."

Police said they're just in the beginning stages of exploring their options. They say they're listening to suggestions. 

"I don't think you can deter them from coming in, you're going to have to deter them from the bad behavior, which is going to have to be higher fines," Dan Piett, an Ocean City homeowner, said. "Stricter fines and higher penalties. It'll cost less."

Another person suggests using the inlet parking lot to impound cars for excessive and reckless driving for the entire weekend.

"If a kid loses his car two weekends in a row, or two years in a row, he's gonna say you know what, maybe it's not worth it doing burnouts," BJ Glenn of Ocean City said. 

Glenn said they want the event in town without the mayhem.

"There's really nothing else going on in ocean city at the end of September. And, these kids bring in hundred of thousands if not millions of dollars for this weekend," Glenn said. "So I think they should work with them to welcome the event there but also have a plan to curb the negative behavior."

Ocean City town leaders say they are aware H2Oi drivers may return in two weeks. Right now, they said they are formulating a plan on how to handle any problems. 

So far, more than 700 people online from the unofficial H2Oi group say they plan to be in Ocean City for Endless Summer Cruisin'.
