LETTER: Skater will cost you

2016-02-23 06:00

On Monday morning my daughter was taking her children to school along Recreation Road. When she slowed down at the circle of the intersection between 10th Avenue and Recreation Road a skateboarder hit the front side bonnet.

Obviously she braked but contact was made. She was traumatised and later broke down. He asked her if she was alright and then skated off towards Main Road, Fish Hoek. Now we are left with an account to pay for a new bonnet.

We have a witness to his actions resulting in the accident and I have seen this particular individual skating down Recreation Road regularly.

I had thought to myself that he was really looking to be involved in an accident because of his reckless and dangerous actions on and off the pavements and lo and behold it happened. He was lucky that he was not severely injured and that my daughter and her two children were not hurt. If you see him take extra care, he could cost you some money.
