LAGUNA BEACH, Calif. (AP) - Juveniles who leave their helmets behind when they go skateboarding in Laguna Beach could have their boards confiscated under an ordinance being considered by the City Council.
The Orange County Register (http://bit.ly/QiYotP) reports the council is set to consider adopting the law at its Tuesday night meeting.
State law requires that anyone under 18 wear a helmet when riding a skateboard.
The proposed ordinance would allow police to seize the boards of violators in Laguna Beach.
First-time offenders would lose their boards for a week and would have to have their parents retrieve them.
Repeat offenders could lose their boards for as long as a month.
Laguna Beach has previously adopted laws banning skateboarding on steep hills. It has also adopted speed limits and other safety requirements for riders.
