a Step In The Right Direction

Skateboarders face more bans

CAPE MAY, N.J. - Fed up with skateboarders, city leaders who years ago banned the activity on city-owned land want to go a half-pipe further, making it illegal to possess, park or carry a skateboard in those places.

The ban would apply to the city's popular oceanfront promenade, a pedestrian mall downtown and in city-owned parks or parking lots.

The measure, which would make violations punishable by up to $100 in fines and confiscation of the skateboard, may be the first anywhere to ban possession of one.

Having been assaulted by skateboarders and falsely accused of assault by one of their "parents" I must applaud the actions of the Cape May city council in dealing with these homegrown savages.

Although ideally I personally believe that skateboarders should be hunted down and exterminated.
