As much as I hate the nanny state spirit of this law, kudos to police for going about it the right way with warnings instead of trying to fleece kids for money. Pleasanton police deserve a lot of respect.

A rare agreement with William Tell on this one. I don't like the somewhat nanny state nature of the law either, but since it's restricted to kids (those under 18) I'm fine with it. Also, I like the fact that the Pleasanton Police is working with the community on this.

The missing component in this are the parents. Not sure why they aren't enforcing this with their kids. Bike, scooter, or skateboard -no helmet, un-clipped helmet that will fall off, or a poorly fitting helmet that gets pushed back over the head on impact -few kids actually wear a helmet that fits or wear it properly. It's not just PPD responsibility, it's parents as well. Wonder if PPD will stop by the skate area at the Sports Park?
