The use of skateboards, rollerblades, roller skates, and similar wheeled devices is not permitted on bike lanes or sidewalks (pavements). This prohibition extends to even electric ones!
Why is it prohibited to use skateboards in bike lanes?
There are several reasons for this law. The main reason is safety. Skateboards are not as stable as bicycles, and they can be a danger to other cyclists or pedestrians if they use the bike lanes.
Additionally, skateboards are much slower than bikes, and they can cause traffic congestion if they use the bike lanes. Finally, skateboards can damage the pavement, which is why they are not allowed on sidewalks either.
Are there any exceptions to this rule?
There are a few exceptions to this rule. First, if a skateboarder is under the age of 12, they are allowed to use the sidewalk (pavement). Second, if a skateboarder is using the bike lane to cross the street, they are allowed to do so as long as they yield to pedestrians and cyclists.
Finally, if a skateboarder is using the bike lane to travel to or from a skatepark, they are also allowed to do so.
Is it OK to skateboard on the road?
However, some cities allow skateboards on the road. In these areas, it is important to be aware of traffic laws and follow them closely when riding your board so as not to cause any harm or injury if you should happen upon another vehicle while traveling at speed!
