High Rollers Changing the Law

From San Diego Magazine,September 2002



Skate Board Criminals
On February 28th, 2002 on my way to the city council meeting, I received a ticket for skateboarding in San Diego from Officer Scott Thompson
who told me I was in violation of San Diego Municiapal code 84.12.

View the letter I wrote to the city council.


On May 19, 2002 we started the petition to revise section 84.12 to allow skateboarding in the roadway. Over 100 people at the North Park Spring Festival signed the petition to legalize skateboarding in the roadway. Local TV stations Channel 7 and Channel 8 came out to do a story on our campaign.
