Get the hell out of my way!!!
You must give “audible signal” to pedestrians when passing them on a bicycle
Sec. 70-69. Responsibilities of bicyclists and skaters. (a) It shall be unlawful for any person to engage in bicycling, skateboarding, in-line skating, or roller skating in the following areas: (1) On the grounds of any public facility including, but not limited to, city hall, municipal parking garages, city police and fire stations, city public works yards, and historically designated properties. (2) On any public walls, ramps, fountains, or other fixtures or structures. (b) Bicycles shall not be chained or otherwise secured to any tree, fixture, or object which is not a bicycle rack on any portion of Lincoln Road or Ocean Drive. (c) Whenever any person is riding a bicycle, skateboarding, in-line skating, or roller skating, such person shall engage in such activity at a controlled speed which does not endanger the safety of pedestrians or others, shall yield the right-of-way to any pedestrian, and shall give an audible signal before overtaking and passing such pedestrian. (Ord. No. 97-3103, Â§ 1, 12-3-97)
Hmm… Where did some of you get the idea that those activities are banned. They’re prohibited in certain areas (those public areas that tend to get torn up by skaters doing their grinds and whatnot), but this section of code does not say they’re illegal.
As for audible signals, that’s just common sense. I don’t see how it’s a stupid law.
i agree lap dances do suck here
Jeanne you are right, Sanzen is a toadbrain and has no clue as to what life is all about. If he wants to live like that, I suggest he/she go to Alaska. The only thing you have to worry about there is being run over by a moose!
(I should not downgrade a toad to his/her level)LOL
these activities are also a lot of fun. Would you like it if your favorite sport was banned? Some of us (especially long boarders) are judged simply by the fact that they longboard. its like being racist.
Longboarding and skateboarding keeps us teens from rebeling getting into drugs and out from behind a screen. when you take away our long/skateboarding rights you force us to rebel and make us quite angry. what ever happened to land of the free and home of the brave? We should be free to have some good quality active fun
And this law is stupid for what reason really? A law that actually makes walking around safer. A lot of accidents happen because people wont ring the bell when passing someone or give a proper turning sing when turning to another road… I’d also suggest giving signal when turning around a corner/entering place that you cannot see too well before its too late if you have a potentially dangerous speed. Whats so stupid about that? Safety = Stupid in your opinion? Geh, get your IQ checked.
