How About Requiring Insurance of Skateboarders?



This is a crazy discussion.

Speedboarding is dangerous for the boarders, but that is their problem. Let kids of all ages have fun. It is also unfair to motorists and cyclists who pay to use the streets and must obtain licenses and insurance for the privilege.

If the community believes that somehow speedboarding is an individual’s right, then establish a system that requires the boarders to buy licenses and obtain insurance policies, which would absolve persons involved in their crashes of any financial or legal obligations and pay for the damages caused by the boarders.

It is hard to believe that Park Avenue is not included in the ban being discussed.
