SDSU police to allow skateboards in campus bike lanes

San Diego State is in the midst of changing its skateboard policy. Currently, skateboards are not allowed on campus and if a police officer sees a student on a skateboard, he or she has the right to cite the student.

But a new policy would allow skateboards in the campus bike lanes.

The enactment of the policy is in its preliminary stages, SDSU spokesperson Greg Block said.

“Basically (this stage) gives the unions an opportunity to voice any concerns (they) might have with the new policy,” Block said.

This union is comprised of staff and faculty from each university department. They are currently discussing safety concerns associated with the policy change.

Block said the policy change will likely pass, but he doesn’t know when.
