Default Should roller hockey be illegal to play on a street?

Me and 8 of my friends play roller hockey on my street once every three days about, if not hockey, then soccer. I was wondering if our police here in jersey are the only ones who give us problems about playing sports on a small street?

Up here in Canada road hockey is an institution. If there's a quiet street with not much traffic, you play. Nobody ever complains.

the thing is, my street has been redone last year with new pavement which lets us use softer wheels.

As a general rule, police anywhere don't just decide to stop people from playing sports in the street, unless the players are interfering with traffic or causing some sort of safety or peace nuisance.

What I would do is try to find out who is calling the police (trust me, someone is)...ask them if they have a preference as to when you play. Could be you're interfering with someone's sleep (they might work nights or something like that). Get them on your side by showing them that you're on theirs.

Question soccer or rollersoccer

if not hockey, then soccer. You mean rollersoccer if not, you should try,it's a thrill Rollersoccer is closer to rollerhockey than just soccer.
If so; show me pics or even better ;video, on youtube for example, and a link to it, on the rollerbasketball/rollersoccer thread.
I am eagerly awaiting your reaction!

there just needs to be mor places to play these sports...

when i played pick-up games years ago, we'd occasionally find a renovated basketball or softball court to play on... but we'd have to do it on off-hours.

depending on the street traffic, the possibility of injury can be pretty high.

we fat americans (ok well maybe just me) could really use more well-maintained places to excersize.

While it is true that street hockey is an institution in Canada, there are some towns and cities where there's a by-law forbidding it. It was a big story somewhere a couple years ago. It wasn't an issue where I grew up, though, thankfully!
