Skatedaily posted this today. In the middle of a bunch of stuff about Republican VP nominee Palin, I saw this noteworthy tidbit of information:
From Politico -
* Palin Supported Penalties for Using Skateboards on Public or Private Property in Wasilla.
“Beginning Oct. 15 — after the expected opening of the $233,000 Wasilla Skate Park — skaters will be breaking the law if they use their skateboards, in-line skates, bicycles, scooters (or any other recreational, non-motorized wheeled device) on public or private property where signs are posted forbidding their use.”
The Frontiersman added, “In the ordinance approved Monday, the penalty for first-time violators of the ordinance is a written warning and the skate device may be confiscated for 10 calendar days. For a second offense, a $50 fine shall be paid and the skate device may be confiscated for 30 calendar days. A third-time offender will have to pay a $100 fine and will lose his or her skate device permanently.” [Frontiersman, 9/18/98]
You know what I think? We need to come together as a people and make politicans work for the SKATEBOARDER vote!
Also, don't expect me to get into politics on BusStop, I was just looking for an excuse to use that picture.
