Snowboarding has no place on city streets and sidewalks, say local police.

Nelson police are dealing with complaints of people building jumps on city streets and sidewalks for snowboarding.

“We would like to remind people that covering steps with snow, building jumps on city streets and snowboarding down sidewalks all cause safety issues for pedestrians and drivers alike – as well as for the boarders,” says Sergeant Janet Scott-Pryke.

Police would also like to commend the bars and restaurants hosting New Year’s Eve celebrations.

Despite it being a busy night downtown, the several issues handled by police were all minor. The ringing in of the New Year was deemed a success.
