FREDERICK, Md. (AP) — The city of Frederick is considering changing the way it enforces restrictions on bicycling and skateboarding on certain city property.

The mayor and Board of Aldermen are set to discuss the matter Wednesday at an afternoon workshop.

The police department says district court judges have taken a dim view of the city’s attempts to enforce the restrictions by prosecuting minors for municipal infractions.

The police are asking the city to consider making violations a criminal offense rather than a civil infraction. An alternate proposal is to make adults legally responsible for ensuring that their children don’t break the law. The adults could then be taken to court.
