Another cop loves skateboarders

happy cop

From the Express-Times in Hellertown, New Jersey:
Top cop wants fines reduced

Maximum of $600 too high for skateboarding in restricted areas, Hellertown chief tells council. The police chief on Monday night told council the $600 maximum fine for skateboarding or biking in areas where it’s not allowed is too steep. Chief Robert Balum said he wants his officers to use more discretion when ticketing for such offenses. The remarks came in response to an ongoing debate targeting skateboarders.

Proving once again that you don’t have to be a dick to enforce the law, Joey Williams.
