No rules, no fines at beach

Gold Coast lifeguards are able to fine unsafe swimmers up to $200, but don’t because they say avoiding rules is part of beach culture.

The latest person to drown on the Gold Coast died after diving into the surf in front of no swimming signs.

Life guards avoid fining swimmers because of the impracticality and because they say people go to the beach to escape the rules.
