Skateboard protective devices installed.
But not really enough.
Going back to the second photo, they took a run up from the front of our building, timing their run so that the green walk would be showing in Kingsway. They went up the left hand slope and shot off the end, without a care about any pedestrian. In fact one collided with a fellow skater and they fell out into stationary traffic on the road. Another almost hit the side of a van when he came off. One of the crew was recording the action, stomping all over the plants in the garden and damaging some. I did nothing and I don't think it will really be an appealing site for skateboarders, but should I have done something? They damaged private property, so should I have called the police?
