Toronto Police Identify & Fine Skateboarders Who Poached Downtown Highway

By

CTV News reports the three skateboarders who poached the Gardiner Expressway in Toronto have been identified and fined $110. Police report the incident happened on Friday at around 8 p.m. while traffic was light but are quick to point out that under no circumstances would skateboarders be allowed on a major highway:

“Skateboards are treated as toys so anybody on a skateboard is treated as a pedestrian. There are no pedestrians or people allowed on the highways, the 400 series highways, at all. It is completely against the law. It’s about a $110 fine. When you come off the ramp, it is fairly short and we are talking about skateboarders wearing black on an all-black asphalt highway. Difficult to see. If they were to stumble, hit a rock, fall, cars might have difficulty stopping before they struck them. That is why we don’t allow pedestrians on the highways.”
