Remove or Amend Section 17.12.430 of the Los Angeles County Code

      Bryan Cain

      Toluca Lake, CA

We the undersigned oppose Section 17.12.430 of the Los Angeles County Code regarding the unlawful nature of casting, tossing, throwing, kicking or rolling any object other than a beach ball or volleyball on LA County beaches. We do not believe it serves the public interest, and hinders the enjoyment of LA County beaches for residents and tourists alike. Recreational objects like but not limited to Frisbees, footballs, hacky sacks, and soccer balls are a significant part of Los Angeles beach culture, and do not pose a significant public health or safety risk. Please consider striking Section 17.12.430 or revising to include a much broader range of recreational toys, balls, and flying discs. Thank you.

      It's ridiculous to legislate what people can throw on a beach, especiaially when it's something as harmless as a frisbee.

      Because whoever thought this was a good idea is someone who hates any type of enjoyment and spends their days staring at paint dry. they should be kicked out of their position for such an absurd rule.

      Live near the beach, enjoy watching my friends play flag football.

      Because the beach is a public place that should be able to be enjoyed how people choose.

      Part of going to the beach has always been playing catch with a football or frisbee. This legislation is exactly what we don't need.
