Who Roller Skates On A Ferry Boat?

Um, I guess its been a while since I've been on a ferry, because I didn't remember them as being places of vice and bad behavior. But the Washington State Patrol says stuff going on is so inappropraite on boats that they're asking for a bill to control behavior on ferries.

Here's a sample: spitting, littering, urinating or defecating in places other than approved plumbing fixtures (ew- really??), carrying flammable liquids, roller-skating (on a boat?? Must be better roller-skaters than me), gambling (gotta pay for your fare somehow), and trying to pass oneself off as a ferry worker. Okay, the last one I have really no clue about.

Surprised? I sure was. Here's the rest of the story from the Spokesman-Review.

I never thought of roller skating on a ferry, but would love to do that. There are many places that are outside on the boat and it would be fine.

Well according to the WSDOT, it's not fine. Uh oh, now I've gone and given you a bad idea.
