In response to a growing number of skateboarders seen coasting down steep streets in Rancho Palos Verdes, City Council members on Tuesday will consider prohibiting skateboarding on certain city roads.
The Council will consider the adoption of a resolution that would prohibit the use of skateboards and other non-motorized wheeled devices, like roller skates and scooters, on more than 10 streets within the city.
The streets include Via Colinita, Palos Verdes Drive East, Silver Arrow Drive, Hawthorne Boulevard, Ganado Drive, Crest Road East, Crest Road West, Crenshaw Boulevard, Browndeer Lane, Verde Ridge Road, Locklenna Lane and Miraleste Drive.
If adopted, signs would be posted to alert residents that skateboards, roller skates, inline skates and scooters are not allowed on the roads.
