Skateboarding Complications in Delaware, Ohio. sign now

Skating downtown should no longer be illegal. Let me point out just few reasons why:

1. There is a skate shop downtown and why else would there be a skate shop if you can't skate near it?

2.Law enforcers (cops) enforce laws more on skateboarding than they do on biking, or any other form of transportation. Biking is more dangerous towards others, because sometimes the bike breaks don't work, bikes are more likely to run over someone.

3. There is no other open spaced, concrete area to skate in. Since the idea of a skate park has been around for a while, yet still no one is even starting on it, where are the skaters supposed to skate till then?

4.Tons of people in the city of Delaware skateboard, and the popularity of skateboarding is increasing fast. So their is most likely going to be a lot of disappointed skaters if there is nowhere to skate.


5.The town seems to support skateboarding in Delaware. The problem is that they seem to want skateboarders to support instead of skateboarding. What is the point of spending loads of cash on a skate park if you don't allow people to skateboard in town. It is even becoming a problem within housing developments. Large groups skateboarding will be ushered away from the only place they thought they could skate!

6. Even the only places you could skate you get thrown out of. Then the police takes your skateboard. Not only do they take it, but if you do not claim it in a certain number of days they will destroy it by putting it into a wood chipper. They call it destroying the evidence. Yeah, they can't just give anybody a warning.

Those were just some good points. I was downtown a few days ago, and I saw a skateboarder being stopped by a police car. The skateboarder was 20 ft. away from the skate shop. The police man took his board, and drove away. The skateboarder walked the rest of the way to the Revolutions Skate Shop. And while that was going on, I saw about two bikes ride by the cop. How unfair is that? Oh and you want to know what happens to the skaters board if it gets taken away? No? Oh well you get to know anyway. The police take it back to the station, and if the skateboarders parents don't pick it up within 90 days, the police shred it. Do they have any idea how expensive those skateboards are? Mine was somewhere around $115 dollars. So please take it into consideration, and make skating legal!

Thanks and if you want to help support the skating downtown then make a petition, have people sign it, or just make more flyers like this (with different points on why it should be legal).

Peace out dudes and chicks-and remember-Make it legal to skate cause we have the right to debate.
