Smashing their heads

Who is going to pay when skateboarders such as Ty Hjortland (Re: San Luis Obispo Skate Park’s grand opening, March 1) might smash their heads in a bad fall?

Shouldn’t the city require helmets at all skate parks before a serious accident occurs and the park is sued for not requiring all users to wear helmets? What are parents thinking in letting these kids go soaring off the edge like we witness in Olympic events? A disaster waiting to happen for some.
