SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) - Some Savannah residents are complaining after city workers confiscated basketball goals children use to play pickup games in the street.

The Savannah Morning News reports (https://bit.ly/2rz1Pcz ) residents of the Ardsley Park neighborhood ignored warnings from City Hall to remove any basketball goals from the street. City spokeswoman Michelle Gavin says leaving any obstruction in the road is a code violation, so city workers took the goals away.

One of them belonged to Scott Rasplicka, who says Savannah went too far in enforcing the ordinance. He says: “As far as I’ve seen, there is no law that says kids can’t play in the street.”

Julian Miller represents the neighborhood on the Savannah City Council. He says he supports removing the curbside hoops, saying they create a “dangerous situation.”
