  • Must be banned

    It is only a matter of time before a skateboarder is killed on Dunedin's roads, Dunedin City Council road safety adviser Henriette Rawlings says.
    Dunedin police agree, and are next week launching a crackdown on skateboarders.

    Under New Zealand law, it is legal to ride a skateboard on the road.

    While skateboarders must comply with all the rules applying to other road users, unlike cyclists, they don't need to wear a helmet or use a light at night.

    Because of the legal framework, police could only enforce the law and could not stop skateboarders using the roads, Ms Rawlings said.

    "All you can do is educate people," she said.

    Constable Chris MacAulay, of Dunedin Police, said skateboards might be legal vehicles but they were inherently more dangerous than bikes because they did not have lights or brakes.

  • Never skateboard on sidewalks.

    Well you see skateboards are fast. It is much dangerous than walking or cycling. So if you skateboard on a sidewalk it is dangerous for both the passengers and the one who is riding the skateboard. Many peoppe just wear hats for style. So even if it's a bit boring go to a park. Or we could make a official skateboard path like a bicycle path?
