Recent Helmet Questions

  • Hello, im sorry, i dont know exactly how to word this, but

    Hello, i'm sorry, i don't know exactly how to word this, but i'm looking for the legal definition of words. In The State of California's, Health and Safety code 115800, the word "skateboard" is used in conjunction with "skatepark". Code 115800, is about the liability of a skatepark operator, who fails to ensure that all persons riding a skateboard, in a skatepark, wear a helmet, elbow pads and knee pads. In todays world, skateparks are not just for skateboards, there are scooters, BMX bikes and sport wheelchairs (even those kids shoes, with the wheels in the soles, use skateparks) and the word skateboard, has become to not only mean, a board with wheels, but also any small wheeled conveyance, that could be used at a skatepark. Since the lawyers, for the San Diego County Parks and Recreation Department, have declared that since skateboards are the only transportation mentioned in this H&S code, that only skateboards are allowed, in park skateparks. The skatepark in question, was built as an All-Wheeled skatepark, but the lawyers insist, that their definition stands. Is there something, some where that has the legal definition of words used in rules and regulations? Thank you very much!!
  • my son worked for FedEx three days ago he got fired for opening

    my son worked for FedEx three days ago he got fired for opening a box that contain new Texas A&M helmets and he took two pictures of the helmet. He did not post them on face book or anywhere else, he did send the pictures to two of his friends and my guess is that one of the friends sent the picture else where. Well FedEx found out and fired him. Can they do that?
