Daredevils who parachute from tall buildings could land in jail if a bill introduced by Council Member Peter Vallone Jr. of Queens becomes law.
Vallone Bill Could Land Daredevil Jumpers in Jail
Mr. Vallone said in an interview he is attempting "to protect citizens from being landed on." The legislation would outlaw climbing and jumping off any structure taller than 25 feet and punish offenders with up to a year of imprisonment and $1,000 in fines.
"I don't know if it's a recurring problem, but one time is too many," Mr. Vallone said. "It could endanger the lives of the jumper and of the people on the street."
I'm much more concerned with other things falling off of tall buildings and onto my head. Where's the legislation on that?
