Skateboarders reported blocking traffic on Royal Street

The Park City Police Department on Saturday received at least two reports about skateboarders in the upper reaches of Deer Valley, including one claiming that the skateboarders were blocking traffic.

In one of the cases, reported at 3:02 p.m., the police were told the skateboarders were causing a traffic hazard on the 8200 block of Royal Street. The police were told they were descending Royal Street from the top and weaving from one side of the road to the other.

Earlier that afternoon, at 1:27 p.m., approximately 10 youngsters were seen on skateboards on the same block of Royal Street. They appeared to be heading down Royal Street, the police were told.

Skateboarders have enjoyed the mild winter, which has allowed them to continue riding at a time of year when they typically face snowy and icy conditions.
