At a recent city council meeting, Councilman Joe Sack expressed concern about Rye's "skateboard problem" cause by the popular long boards. What do you think? Leave a comment below.
"Councilman Sack noted that there was a skateboard problem in town and asked if the Traffic & Pedestrian Safety Committee or the Shared Roadways Committee could consider the problem and think about the best way to communicate with the children who are putting themselves in jeopardy in order to make everyone safer. City Manager Pickup said the problem is caused by the use of long boards which do not lend themselves to the traditional skateboard venues and he has been working with the Recreation and Police Departments to find creative ways to address the problem, which may have to be addressed with their parents."
