In Philly, Skateboarding (On The Phone) Is A Crime

As if skaters didn’t have enough to worry about when skating downtown, Philadelphia has announced that effective November 1, skateboarding and talking on the phone will now be illegal.

According to NPR:

Starting November 1st in Philadelphia, if you are skateboarding, biking, doing some inline skating, you better put away your cell phone or you better use a hands-free device. It’s one of the most far-reaching bans on non-motorists in the nation.
