Laguna Beach voting on skateboard confiscation law

You can read the article on the from Laguna Beach. I understand that the city wants kids under 18 to wear helmets when skateboarding, but taking boards for a month seems almost like it would be illegal to me. Not wearing a helmet is a small ticket offense. Should the police be allowed to take a car for a month when the driver runs a stop sign which is a much more weighted offense? Parents should be responsible for their kids and not the government.
