Hey,San Rafael, haven’t you heard? Skateboarding is not a crime!

About Lloyd Kahn

Lloyd Kahn started building his own home in the early '60s and went on to publish books showing homeowners how they could build their own homes with their own hands. He got his start in publishing by working as the shelter editor of the Whole Earth Catalog with Stewart Brand in the late '60s. He has since authored six highly-graphic books on homemade building, all of which are interrelated. The books, "The Shelter Library Of Building Books," include Shelter, Shelter II (1978), Home Work (2004), Builders of the Pacific Coast (2008), Tiny Homes (2012), and Tiny Homes on the Move (2014). Lloyd operates from Northern California studio built of recycled lumber, set in the midst of a vegetable garden, and hooked into the world via five Mac computers.

    oh sure, guess I understand, somewhat safety concerns..etc..maybe.

    just betting though, the "adults" who voted to put up this sign, also complain about lazy youth who lay around and never get no exercise…

  3. Malum prohibitum. So many rules you can't help but break one or two every day. But then again, some rules were made to be broken.

    I can't find anything in the code that prohibits skateboarding and rollerskating on sidewalks in the code. I would love to hear a lawyer's reading of the code and the codes it refers to though. Sounds like a big scary sign and the code seems big and scary at first, but it mostly deals with boring stuff having nothing to do with bikes, skateboards, and rollerskates.
