Reckless Skateboarding to be Banned!

From KPCC via CurbedLA:

Skateboarders would be required to follow the rules of the road or face a citation and possible impound under a proposal unanimously backed today by the Los Angeles City Council.

SMA Factory Pilots Bombing Malibu

The City Attorney’s Office was asked to draft an ordinance that would ban “skateboard bombing,” which is skateboarding in a reckless fashion downhill at excessive speeds while failing to obey traffic laws.

Introduced by Councilman Joe Buscaino, the motion would require skateboarders to stay on the right-side of the road, yield to pedestrians and vehicles, stop at stop signs and uncontrolled intersections, and maintain a speed under 25 mph.

Reckless skateboarding could be an infraction or a misdemeanor, depending on how the ordinance is written by the City Attorney’s Office. Buscaino also asked that skateboards be impounded if a participant fails to obey traffic laws.
