UK Bans Hoverboards From All Campus Property
Hoverboards will no longer be a welcome sight on the UK campus. They’ve been banned from all school property effective immediately.
A news release says it’s all in the name of fire safety…in particular, several recent instances of batteries from the electronic skateboards and self-balancing devices bursting into flames, usually while they’re being re-charged.
Several other SEC schools — including Arkansas, LSU, and Vanderbilt — have already banned the devices.
Anyone with questions or concerns about the hoverboard ban can contact the UK Fire Marshall’s Office.
