My husband got pulled over on roller skates? Somehow in my last post I forgot to mention the most ludicrous "traffic violation" our family has encountered to date. And as you can tell, we have unfortunately had our share of tickets....
Here's how it unfolded. Occasionally my husband - a certified "rink rat" during the 80's - heads off on his roller skates with outdoor wheels to skate about 8 miles on a local greenway.
In order to get to said greenway, he has to skate a mile through town, which I already mentioned is a police zone.
Well, he came home a few weeks ago to tell me he had gotten pulled over - yep - pulled over - on roller skates - and by the Canine Unit so there was a dog barking loudly and viciously the entire time.
What was his infraction? Was he blocking traffic? Nope. Not wearing a helmet? Nope. Jayskating? Nope.
He was skating facing traffic!!!!!! Yep, so he could see on coming traffic and not get hit, he was skating facing traffic along the very wide shoulder of the street. Can you believe this? Apparently he must skate with the flow of traffic, possibly because he has "wheels" -- he is considered a "vehicle???" I need to do some research and find the law. He got off with a warning LOL.
If this is not an indication our local cops have too much time on their hands, I don't know what is....SHEESH!
