Legalization of skateboards on Maui county streets and sidewalks

Stop persecution against skaters and give us the same rights as bikers

This is important because skateboarding is a growing sport in Maui County as well as a mode of transportation for many! It is unjust for bicycle riders to be allowed to ride their bikes wherever they want where as skateboards are limited to use in skate parks. The use of a skateboard outside of a skate park results in a hefty fine with the chance of having your skateboard confiscated. Police also have the right to rip you off of your skateboard which causes physical and psychological harm, irregardless of the skaters age. Skateboarding is a major influence and an amazing way to keep future generations off drugs and away from crime!

Letter to

We would like to persecution against skaters by providing us the same rights as bicyclists. We want it to be legal for skateboards to be ridden on city sidewalks as well as the side lane so long as helmets and/or gloves are worn.
