Is It Illegal to Skateboard or Rollerblade in Downtown Evansville, Indiana?
Here's a fun little fact for you: Our radio studios are located in Downtown Evansville. We are actually in the Fifth Third Bank building. Thankfully, we have access to the parking garage, but other people sometimes use it for recreation, so I wondered if it was legal or not.
Okay, I will admit that if I think laws are being broken, I will shut down the fun immediately. Like when I see kids on scooters, roller blades, or skateboards in areas that they probably shouldn't be. Seriously, when I spotted a couple of teens doing their skateboarding tricks in a parking garage, I wanted to issue them a ticket on the spot!.
