Ban Speedboarding Everywhere

Ban Speedboarding Everywhere

Editor, It was with some astonishment that I read the update on the speedboarding ban sent from SNAG last week. As I was out of town, I could not attend the last meeting. I assumed the Council would act swiftly to enact a law prohibiting this dangerous pastime throughout the City of Laguna Beach. But, […]

Speeding Drivers a Bigger Concern

Speeding Drivers a Bigger Concern

Editor, I live at 1106 Skyline Drive and I am opposed to any citywide ban on skateboarding, speedboarding, or otherwise. If the City Council is concerned with the safety of residents on Skyline and other steep streets, please construct sidewalks and enforce the posted speed limits. I am far more concerned with the cars that […]

Speedboarding Is Incomprehensible

Speedboarding Is Incomprehensible

Editor, We are in favor of banning the speedboarding in our neighborhood, for the safety of these teens and residents, and for decreased personal and city liabilities. We are convinced that this activity is dangerous and should not be allowed in the neighborhood streets in Laguna Beach. We live on Van Dyke and come across […]

Points Against Speedboarding

Points Against Speedboarding

Editor, I am writing to you as a homeowner and resident of Morningside Drive to share my concerns and thoughts about the issue of speedboarding in the neighborhood. Most of us who purchased homes in the neighborhood did so in part because it was quiet, secluded, beautiful and safe, not to mention in Laguna Beach […]

Support for Ban on All Steep Streets

Support for Ban on All Steep Streets

Editor,   Whilst I support, in principal, the American ideals of freedom of expression and freedom to pursue one’s own happiness, as a resident of the Park, Temple Hills, Skyline neighborhood, I support a speedboarding ban on those streets.   Both while driving my car and whilst going for a run on those streets, I’ve […]

How About Requiring Insurance of Skateboarders?

How About Requiring Insurance of Skateboarders?

Editor, 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 […]

Open Paved Fire Roads to Skateboarding

Open Paved Fire Roads to Skateboarding

Editor,   Hi. I just wanted to share my thoughts of speedboarding as a homeowner on Summit Drive.   Personally I have no problem with speedboarding as a sport, but on public streets it does create unnecessary risks for speedboarders and drivers. As a cyclist I am responsible to abide by the respective traffic laws […]

Say ‘No’ to Thrill Seekers

Say ‘No’ to Thrill Seekers

(This letter was also addressed to council members.) Editor, I am writing to ask you to prohibit speedboarding on Park Avenue.  I live near the top of Park Avenue and I have been scared many times while driving up Park by speedboarders flying past my car while I’m travelling up Park Avenue.  I am sure […]

Ban Speedboarding on Balboa

Ban Speedboarding on Balboa

Editor,   Please be advised that I strongly support the ban on speedboarding currently up for adoption by the Laguna Beach City Council.   My house is located on Balboa Avenue, which, unfortunately, is very popular with the boarders as a starting venue. Daily activity is ongoing, and many of the participants are not even […]

Speedboarding threatens the safety and well being of both the speedboarder and the drivers in my neighborhood, and we must put a stop to it! Sharon R. Davison Laguna […]

Ban Speedboarding on Skyline!

Ban Speedboarding on Skyline!

Editor,   I personally have almost hit two of them head-on coming around the corner in my lane of travel. I was so shaken that I had to pull over to regain my composure before heading up the hill to my home.   Just because someone decides to do something suicidal like speedboarding doesn’t mean […]

Editor, As a resident of Laguna Beach, living on a steep hill, and having had several close calls with reckless people directly in front of our home, we would express our complete support for the banning of speedboarding on any and all streets in Laguna Beach.   Speedboarding is unsafe for the participant as well […]

Step Up to a Ban on Skyline

Step Up to a Ban on Skyline

Editor,   We are residents of Laguna Beach living on Skyline Drive.  It is distressing that the City Council recently banned speedboarding on certain steep Laguna streets but exempted Skyline Drive.   A steep public road, blind curves, autos and heavy equipment in daily use, children on skateboards at high speed. What is it the […]

Ban Speedboarding in Top of the World

Ban Speedboarding in Top of the World

Editor,   As a resident of Top of the World, I am very concerned about the presence of speedboarders in our neighborhood. On many occasions, I have come around the corner to my street, Zell, after going up the hill on Temple Hills, only to be shocked to find a young person, hidden by the […]

Ban Speedboarding in Manzanita Area

Ban Speedboarding in Manzanita Area

Editor,   Help! Somebody is going to be killed if speedboarding continues on our street (Manzanita off La Vista/Skyline and Park).   We have three blind corners, one of which is at the Annneliese School, where congestion involves small children and their parents picking them up and dropping them off at several different times of […]
