  1. Some kids use to break the ice like that in the US too. However, skating on ponds that are located on city property has basically become illegal in every US city. It’s too dangerous.

  2. Can it be illegal?
    If a numper of young mans are going to have dangerous expirience – so what? They can do what they want, even if they would die in a process.

    It was a joke. 🙂

  3. I know those kids are having a fun time. More than likely, the police would give them a ticket. If they were really young, the police might drive them to their parents home. Kind of embarrassing. The problem is that many people die on thin ice. The police just don’t want to be pulling dead kids out ponds in the middle of winter. Also, I believe that the is sometimes a financial burden on the city. An ambulance is tied up, police get ties up and maybe even a search and rescue team.

    Here’s another example. If you drive in Texas without wearing your seatbelt, you will get slapped with a $500 ticket/fine. Ouch! Believe me, the police are good at spotting that too.

    I wish they would do the same in Moscow!

    By that logic smoking, eating fatty foods, drinking, and anything else that might have an affect on public services should be ticketable. Hell, driving for that matter should be ticketable. Think of all the lives that could be saved…

  6. Actually, New York City recently banned trans fat in restaurants. http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/16051436/

    These types of bans are pretty common in developed countries. For example, I believe it is the UK that only permits organic produce.
