San Leandro, CA – Skate Industry News: Last Ever Dolores Hill Bomb 2020: Speed B…

The annual Dolores Hill Bomb went off and it was as expected! Rough and tumble, fast and dirty, power slides and ambulances. Just like every other year. No one in masks and everyone hauling ass. Well, I think the city has had enough. City officials have added new speed bumps to Dolores Street near Dolores Park this weekend after the many bails, slide outs and head knocks which sent at least one person the the hospital with life-threatening injuries.

Jeffrey Tumlin, who is the head of the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency, tweeted some images of the new speed bumps on Saturday afternoon.

“SF has a world renowned skate scene I love. So I hate doing this to Dolores,” Tumlin said. “Consulting now with leaders about building stronger skate culture and co-designing Slow Streets.”

According to S.F. police, a bicyclist and a skateboarder colliding was reported Friday near Dolores and Cumberland streets. The bicyclist, a man in his 20s, was taken to the hospital with life-threatening injuries, while the skateboarder suffered injuries that were not considered life-threatening.

The annual Dolores Hill Bomb event draws extremely large crowds to the area and in past years has seen numerous confrontations with police and some serious injuries. This year, however, this event seemed to pop off on more than one day this month.

Supervisor Rafael Mandelman said on Facebook that skateboarders had taken over Dolores Street “for the third time in a little over a week.” He alleged that “neighbors have been assaulted and nearby schools and homes have been damaged. This has to stop, [..] Over the last week my office has been working with SPFD, MTA and Public Works to find a solution that will stop this dangerous situation from continuing.”

We will keep a close eye on the situation and see what happens for next year!
