Send the driver the bill for the coast guards time, and three points on his/her licence for driving without due care and attention.

At least this one didn't demand to be rescued, and didn't require a tow truck.

This is exactly the way it should be handled. If somebody is enough to, in effect, drive into the sea, leave them there until the tide has receded. Nobody has ever been swept away, it's always massive over-reaction if lifeboats, coastguard etc are sent out.

Mersea people are well aware of the tides and the potential for getting stuck; the problem is that people who visit the island are not always so aware. I have sat in the queue before while somebody a few cars back spent several minutes hooting his horn and shouting at people. Finally, he jumped in his car, overtook the queue, went at full pelt into the Strood. He made a gallant effort and got almost halfway across, perhaps just far enough not to hear the cheers ringing out across the water. A priceless moment and thankfully, no sign of the coastguard or lifeboat, just a wet and dead car when the tide receded, and a rather angry looking man on his phone.
