VSA News 11/30/09

Hello all VSA members met with IIth district City Councilman Bill Rosendahl recently to discuss the LAPD intent on enforcing the helmet ordenance starting Dec 1st. First of all I would like to say that council Rosendahl's office is genuinely concerned with the safety and wellfare of the skaters.Specificly what was discussed is the language of the ordanence. The ordenance has been written specifically for skate-parks. The Venice skate plaza is deemed a "plaza"for this very purpose of circumventing the ordanence. The VSA is of the opinion that the LAPD interpretation of the state law is incorrect. Mr. Rosendahl has been in contact with the City attorney and the Pacific Division LAPD captain concerning the issue. VSA recommends at this time to bring your helmet to avoid a ticket. VSA will keep you advised of the situation and any developments. BTW the contest is on for Dec 19th "Educate and inform the whole mass of the people...They are the only sure reliance for the preservation of liberty."- T. Jefferson
