That's right...only in California. Relating to this, there was a story of a guy who tried to sue a department store b/c he crashed his motorcycle driving through the remnants of what was a watermelon in the parking lot. I don't think he got anywhere with that one though...

Here is the story from another forum I'm on:

So here's my dilemna- I was doing about 5 mph when I rode over a watermelon that had been smashed on the road and run over a few times in front of JC penny's. Now here's the issue...it was 7pm and the watermelon was flat on the pavement, I couldn't even see it and it had been there for about a day because the previous day I had seen where someone had thrown it down because it was in large clumps at the time.... The bike's not bad but the left side has been thrashed the front axle is bent a little bit, the swingarm is scrathed and bent where the rear peg is and the gas tank has a small ding in it....I went home after and called the police after I got the manager's name and told her about the accident but the police could have cared less and didn't even show up... So I went back to the scene today and took pictures and luckily even though i informed the management at JC penny's the watermellon bits were still there so i'm hoping I can take them to small claims court for diligence...anyone out there a lawyer...is this an available option.

Oh...and I just put my half termiginoni system on about 4 hours prior and it sounded great....life sucks..

Since when does a state have any responsibility for the condition of it's roadways? I'm guessing the case will be overturned on appeals by the state.

this situation i can understand. it is private property and the business has an obligation to maintain its parkway for the safety of their customers.

Think about it though...he said he knew it was there before, yet he ran over it the next day with his motorcycle. That's like me suing Best Buy b/c I crashed my motorcycle in their parking lot b/c of an oil patch. It doesn't make sense...
