bazzer:tardtasticx:tombrownzz:tardtasticx:tombrownzz: i think i know why you got charged. Skateboarding is legal on the road as long as you keep to the left as reasonably possible. You do not even need to wear a helmet.
And mate, you should be calling the police because people are doing something that could harm someone "else", not harm yourself.ie if you run over a skateboarder you will not get hurt so you don't want to punish someone who is not even hurting anyone but his or herself.
Read the whole post -______- It wasn't a criminal charge. And it can endanger someone else too. If I swerved to avoid hitting him or something, I might have hit something else. Thats the first time I've seen someone skateboard in the road like that before, so if its safe and the police have no need to get involved, then why doesnt every skateboarder do it?
Your post said one of the skateboarders nearly got hit by a car pulling out of a giveway, so why didn't you report the car who nearly hit the skateboarder instead of the other way around?
Because the road is meant for cars, not people.
And motorbikes, and bicycles, and droving animals, and skateboards, and scooters, and...
In fact, you'll find pedestrians are also road users.
Bikes, animals and skateboarders are meant to stick to the left of the road, not drive with traffic. Who rides a skateboard on a road? Its covered in stones and the vibrations would be insane.
