Alternative transportation history factoid

I just saw mention of a ban one community had against "go-devils" from 1926 to 1965. It seems these were skateboard-type devices that caused a lot of panic and consternation amongst the populace of San Gabriel, California. ---"Officials Stress Skateboard Safety," Arcadia Tribune, May 29, 1975, p. B1.
