Do not ban skateboarding.

      Charleston, SC

Skateboarding should be supported as a healthy means of transportation, especially on peninsular Charleston. Charleston is a pedestrian city. Its compact size, narrow streets, and limited parking make it a wonderful place to be enjoyed without the use of a motorized vehicle. Limiting pedestrian modes of transportation like skateboards, bicycles, roller skates, scooters, etc. is a mistake. Alternative modes of transportation should be encouraged and rewarded.

      because this is ridiculous. skateboarding is a form of physical activity that sets individuals away from others. It encourages an activity with no rules or coaches where individuals are free to do as they please. America is already obese, why take away something that aids in preventing the further growth

      All of my kids were brought up skateboarding. Today all the kids want to sit around and play video games or watch TV and eat causing them to become fat and lazy. Having something like this around gives them motivation to get out and exercise.

      Skateboarding is how I have commuted around Charleston ever since I moved down here 4 years ago. I skate to work, to school, to bars (I can't drive drunk which is a good thing) and just to get some fun exercise on our beautiful summer days!! I don't see how thats hurting anyone at all. It uses no fuel, and does not add to the downtown congestion and is GREAT for gutting to class in a hurry during the 10 minute break. Thank everyone who is involved with this petition!!

      I agree wholeheartedly with the what the petition says I have also used skateboarding as a mode of transportation for a number of years its also a lot easier to pick up and get on a bus with then a bicycle
