Electronic skateboards and self-balancing devices, like hoverboards, are going to be temporarily off limits on the LSU campus, according to an email sent out to campus residents.
Their use is restricted due to safety concerns while riding as well as the recent fires they have caused while charging their batteries.
LSU spokesman Ernie Ballard said his understanding is that the hoverboard ban includes campus grounds and all other campus buildings.
