As the Małopolska police reported in a statement, the driver was a 25-year-old resident of the Kęty commune. “The officers imposed a fine of PLN 1,000 on him for committing an offense regarding the destruction of water areas,” the officers said.

The officers added that driving this type of off-road vehicles “must be very cautious and take place in designated areas.”

“Pursuant to Article 81 of the Code of Petty Offenses, damaging water areas is punishable by a fine of up to PLN 1,000. Forest areas are also particularly protected. Polish law prohibits entry into the forest by motor vehicles, and only signs informing about the right of entry make it possible. You must also pay attention to attention to private areas, including arable fields or meadows, and access roads to fields. The destruction of such a road also has financial consequences,” we read in the release.
