Veronica Knox started this petition to Warrensburg Missouri Public Safety Department and

Under the current city ordinance (Chapter 23, Article 1, Section 23-9) skateboards, longboards, and other coasters are all categorized as "toy vehicle(s)" thereby prohibiting their use upon paved streets and roads--despite human-powered vehicles with similar speed potential being deemed too dangerous for use upon sidewalks (as is outlined by the Missouri Bicycle and Pedestrian Federation). 

It is our firm belief that in order to ensure both transportation equality and safety, that skateboards, longboards, and similar devices be de-categorized as toys, and instead be held to the same standards and level of responsibility as is expected of bicyclists in the Warrensburg, Missouri area.

By enabling this reclassification, our local government will be able to provide an alternative mode of transportation, a means of exercise, and a rewarding hobby--while still maintaining the safety parameters necessary to protect both pedestrians and riders.
