SAN DIEGO (KGTV) -- The City of San Diego is trying to stop people from driving onto the Ocean Beach Pier, recently installing plastic pylons.

The city recently installed the pylons at the foot of the pier after a car sped onto the structure, hitting two people and a police cruiser in June.

The pylons are the first step, but the city says it’s still considering additional options to discourage people from driving onto the pier.

“The delineators are drive over and allow for emergency vehicles to continue to quickly access the pier in case of an emergency,” a spokesperson said.

"This City is still evaluating additional options to discourage the public from driving their vehicles on the pier."
