Have you ever been to or seen a skatepark? Were there skateboarders or bikers? Or was there a combination of both? I think that skate parks should be only for skateboarders! Bikers should be banned from skateparks and go to a BMX park for the safety of themselves and others. Bikes and skateboards break if involved in a collision. People end up in the hospital because of being hit by bikers or their bikes.

Bikers also think they own the place taking up all the ramps and bowls.

Nobody likes a broken bike or skateboard. Many times when ever there are bikers and skateboarders at the same park some ones bike or skateboard gets messed up somehow. Skateboards and bikes are not cheap either! I have seen a little boy who had just recently received an expensive new skateboard, he messed up a trick, and the board went flying, and was run over by a biker. The boy was devastated!

Almost every time I have been to the skatepark some one ends up in the hospital, or badly injured and most of the time a biker is involved. Bikers sometimes think they are so awesome going off rails and ramps not big enough for a bike and fall and are usually seriously injured. They love to cut in and out of skaters usually making them fall and become injured and sometimes be hit. People also try to do dumb stunts involving a bike and skateboard at the same time!! I know some people think “Well skateboarders should watch out for bikers too.” Yes, but it is a skatepark so bikers shouldn’t be there in the first place!
