Legalize Longboarding, Skateboarding, and Inlineskating In Ottawa
Petition Background (Preamble):
According to the Traffic and parking By-Law NO. 2003 - 530, Part VIII [Driving and Related Rules]
"77. No person shall coast on a roadway, whether on a sleigh, skateboard, rollerskate, in-line skate, cart, children's wagon or toboggan
84. (1) No person shall drive a vehicle or ride upon a skateboard, rollerskates or in-line skates on a sidewalk except for the purpose of directly crossing the sidewalk."
Longboarding, Skateboarding, and Inline Skating are activities that youth use as transportation, a method of exercise, and a reason to go outside.
Longboards, skateboards, and inline skates are more convenient to transport than a bicycle, more environmentally friendly than a car, and faster and more efficient than walking.
We understand and respect that there will be laws on these modes of transportation if they become legal, just as cycling does.
