Attention, drivers within the city limits of Plattsburgh. Do not honk at rude skateboarders. They rule the streets. They have absolute right-of-way. They can ride in any lane, going in any direction, any way they want.
Proceed slowly and allow them to obstruct traffic. Have your foot ready to hit the brake in case one suddenly swerves in front of your vehicle. It’ll be your fault if he’s hurt. Normal traffic laws do not apply to reckless skateboarders within Plattsburgh.
Don’t bother to pull over and park to call the police on your cell phone at 563-3411. After all, if skateboarders were breaking the law, the police would arrest them – right?
