The initiator of the abolition of the municipal law, the town of Severance (Colorado) made nine-year-old student.
In October 2018, a boy named Dane best, along with classmates went on a tour to the town hall. The mayor began to tell the students about weird laws. He also mentioned the resolution from 1920 according to which the Severance is not to throw stones and other projectiles at people, animals, trees, buildings and vehicles.
Snowballs are technically fit under the definition of throwing a projectile, however, the authorities never insisted on the implementation of the ban. Moreover, the mayor of Severance didn’t even know how to punish offenders (which were, for example, his sons).

Dane best decided to rectify the situation. The boy gathered with classmates two dozen signatures in their support and prepared a five minute presentation in which he explained why the city government should lift the ban. He called the law outdated and said that living in Severance children, like children the rest of the world, should be able to leave the snowballs. The city Council supported the proposal best, and the mayor gave the student a special device — Nikola.
After the lifting of the ban best promised first to throw a snowball at his four year old brother.
