This is a common theme downtown - no skateboarding, or skating, or rollerblading. I guess for safety reasons? I really don't know the reason. I do know some people in Boise have bumper stickers that say "Skateboarding is not a crime." I know skateboarding has caused some controversy in the past, but I thought that was all over with. I didn't know skating was controversial, too. I guess strollers are still O-K. And wheeled suitcases.
