Responsible use of alternative transportation methods including skateboards, roller skates, rollerblades, scooters, and other coasting devices is allowed on campus as a way of reducing reliance on motorized transportation and promoting exercise.
Coasting Devices Policy Overview
- Coasting devices are allowed in any area on campus except those specified for pedestrians, in a building, or in a covered area. This policy establishes pedestrian only zones.
- The policy covers roller skates, rollerblades, scooters, skateboards, and other coasting devices. Bicycles are excluded because bicycle rules follow standard road rules throughout campus.
- Riders of coasting devices must adhere to basic rules, such as yielding to all pedestrians and limiting speed to less than 5mph, regardless of location.
- Coasting devices are prohibited on roadways and in parking lots. No stunts or tricks are allowed, and riding coasting devices down hills (such as East and West Campus Drives) is prohibited.
