Hey so I just got my Legal Studies task sheet for out latest assignment and its pretty much 'research any law you want and tell me about it.
So i decided i might look into doing the laws surrounding skateboarding.
I was wondering if anyone had any
1) Sections of the law which are relevant?
2) Actual cases of people being charged for skating 'offences'
3) Run in's with the police and what happened
4) Personal opinions about the laws surrounding skateboarding
I have started searching through the forums and net, its just i wanted to get fresh news and keep in in the one place :)
now im dropping nuts for whenever we do your run again for if he sees us
if he does we are bailing

Police catagorise a lot because it is the easiest way to asses a situation. Skateboard = school dropout, criminal and general pest. It's the way most police officers treat me anyway. Was once stopped and asked for ID as there had been break ins and car thefts in the area... then asked if I was going to the skatepark (I was on a longboard). On the up side, they either did not know the laws surrounding the use of skateboards or didn't mind that I was bombing my local main road...
