http://vancouversun.com/news/local-news/vancouver-mans-first-ride-on-electric-skateboard-ends-with-600-ticket Same motorcycle cop as harassed me busted this poor guy on a V2 Boosted Board on his way to work. Handed him a $600 fine. Shop that sold it takes NO responsibility for not warning him. How is it NOT entrapment to allow the sale, (with no warning) of a $2,200 item which is then illegal the second he walks out of the store? I have written the author of the piece and sent it to the local sellers, and I emailed LongBoarder labs (who sold it to the victim) to ask if they are going to help us change the law, or just take the money (diplomatically though of course!) and continue to ignore their customers paying a heavy price due to not knowing. Vancouver - Home of the combustion engine and jack-booted law to keep it that way! Don't believe the "green" crap, it's all lies in this city. I'll be next, eventually this cop WILL see me again
I was just out for a ride to the seawall, got a few blocks and a motorcycle cop pulls me over while going from a road to a park. He asks me how long I have been riding the wheel, I tell him a month or more. He says that in Vancouver, it is illegal to ride these EUCs anywhere in the city. No sidewalks, bike trails, bike lanes, nothing. He says he could give me a $530 fine for riding it in Vancouver if he sees me again! He says they are classified as motor vehicles and cannot be insured either. I just spent $1400 cdn on this wheel, it's my commute to work, and my absolute favorite thing in the world and the cop says i will be fined $530 (which I cannot afford) if he sees it again! $#@%!!!! So now I am faced with not riding a brand new wheel, or facing an unpayable fine if I do. If you live in Vancouver or BC, or just give a damn for some reason, please email the Mayor's office, it's easy! http://vancouver.ca/your-government/contact-mayor-robertson.aspx 604-873-7621 Media relations email@example.com Address Gregor Robertson, Mayor 3rd Floor, City Hall 453 West 12th Ave Vancouver, BC V5Y 1V4 I have not felt so absolutely devastated in a long time, I LOVE gliding my wheel! /Seppuku
