SF’s skateboarding laws could change

Supervisor John Avalos said Tuesday that he is requesting legislative analyst survey skateboarding laws in different cities in California and elsewhere in the nation “and see what we might be able to apply here.”

The request comes after Avalos watched a video of a group of skateboarding youth being cited for skateboarding on the sidewalk.

“My children are really starting to have a lot of fun with skateboards,” Avalos said. But after watching the video, he said he realized that “my children perhaps are maybe breaking the law. I think it’s important for us as a city understand what our laws mean towards skateboarding in terms of skateboarders’ ability to move freely about the city and to get to the places where they can skateboards, such as skateboard parks.”
