Pushing a Stroller Through Dirt on Shabbat

Pushing a Stroller Through Dirt on Shabbat
Day: Tuesday

Parshat: Noah
Yalkut Yosef: O"H: 337

In memory of Adam Eliyahu ben Reina

As mentioned previously, it is forbidden to dig or make tracks in dirt on Shabbat. However, it is permissible to drag an object over dirt if ones intention is not to make tracks and if it is not completely certain that tracks will be made by the object being dragged. Therefore, if there is a proper eruv, it is permissible to push a stroller through dirt on Shabbat even though doing so will create tracks. This is the case even regarding a double stroller which is heavier.
