Skating on any public road/pavement has been illegal from 2007. This is an issue for people who use their skateboards to commute on their daily basis, be it to a friends house, the shops, school and alternatively work. Skating is an Eco friendly form of transportation which also keeps the commuters fit and healthy how ever enforcement on skaters has gone up ever since with skaters being fined R300 and or having their skateboards confiscated.
With that in mind #Movements in part of their community based work has decided to play a role in ensuring that skaters have the right to use the pavements and roads responsibly (Back roads not main roads). We are calling for support in legalizing the use of skateboards legally.
We allow bicycles on pavements and roads, why can't we tolerate skaters as well?
