Skateboarders traveling on roadways have the duties of drivers of vehicles. When traveling on sidewalks, skateboarders have the general rights and duties of pedestrians. It is the responsibility of public safety officials to maintain a safe campus environment through enforcement of those provisions. Where breaches in safe operation of skateboards arise, public safety personnel may refer a student to the Office of Student Accountability and Restorative Practices and a student may be charged with a violation of the Dangerous Practices policy.

J-101.3 Avoid areas where there is heavy pedestrian traffic and/or speed is hard to control.

J-101.4 Persons riding a skateboard or similar mode of transportation shall not attach themselves to any other vehicle on the roadway. (Formerly J-104.1)
