[Video] Skateboarder Reaching 68mph: Man Faces Arrest for Going Over Speed Limit

Boarding without borders: Watch the extreme skateboarder facing arrest for reaching 68mph
The “Spoofing the Traffic Camera” video, shows South African skater Decio Lourenco hurtling down the mountain road in fading light

[quote]A skateboarder is facing arrest over a video posted on YouTube of him careering down a street at 68 mph to set off a speed camera.

The “Spoofing the Traffic Camera” video, which has notched up more than 200,000 YouTube hits, shows South African skater Decio Lourenco, hands folded behind his back to decrease wind resistance, hurtling down the mountain road in fading light.

Motorists in Cape Town on the opposite side have their headlights on.

Towards the bottom of the run, he throws his hands up in jubilation after a GPS system strapped to his foot showed he had clocked up the amazing speed.

“We have handed over the matter to traffic officials and want him arrested.” JP Smith, the Cape Town official in charge of safety and security.

“The speed limit is irrelevant. He is seen careering down the road in a reckless and dangerous manner.”

The road in question, Kloof Nek, is one of Cape Town’s steepest and has been used to host extreme skateboarding events, although only when closed to traffic.

The city does not allow skateboarding on public roads.

The threat of arrest for one of their most celebrated comrades has the close-knit skateboarding community up in arms, with posts on the National Skate Collective Facebook page calling for “mass action”.

“The city is trying to shut us down.” said the page, which carries the popular skater tag-line “Skate or Die”.

Skateboard does all the work, he just stands on it.

He received a citation because someone wanted him arrested. Probably a sourpuss who hates young people and all that they do. If people love the hill so much make the hill a skating event and make big money instead of citing people with ridiculous charges.
