At a meeting on Monday, the Amagansett Citizens Advisory Committee met up to discuss the madness that has become Indian Wells Beach. Once known for being a nice spot for families, the beach has recently turned into crowds of drunkards who play loud music and urinate in public. The committee was trying to figure out how to regulate, suggesting banning alcohol during the daytime, limiting taxi and bus access to the beach's parking lot... But could social media be to blame? Who is sending out tweets to their followers instructing them to come to the beach armed with cases of Bud Light? Who is posting photos on Instagram of fun times tagged #indianwellsbeach?
The committee is hoping that better regulation of taxi cabs and actual enforcement of whatever is ultimately decided will help the situation.
