Congresswoman asks police to lift Capitol Hill sledding ban

Kids are joyfully sledding down Capitol Hill… just kidding that’s actually illegal

Yep. That’s right. At the center of freedom and democracy, it is illegal to sled down a hill.

A U.S. Congresswoman, Rep. Eleanor Holmes Norton of DC, has called for DC police to lift the sledding ban on Capitol Hill for this weekend. The ban — which is waiting a further, more formal review — is being enforced under this regulation:

“No person shall coast or slide a sled within Capitol Grounds.”

In a plea to police to institute a temporary lifting of the ban, Rep. Norton wrote, “This is a one-time waiver that will allow D.C. kids to sled while we await a more formal review of the ban, which will likely come after the last snow has fallen in our region. Have a heart, Mr. Larkin, a kid’s heart that is.”

This request comes as DC braces for its biggest snowstorm of the year, expecting 6-10 inches through Thursday.

The Congresswoman’s full letter, which is very formal and cool-looking, can be read below.

PS – People are actually just breaking the law and sledding, which is nice to see. Nothing like a little revolution to get you through winter’s homestretch.
