No More Hoverboards In Public Places!

UAE has banned the use of hover boards in public areas including residential complexes, shopping malls, roads and walkways.

The move was taken by Dubai Municipality, which has warned that any violation of the ban will lead to confiscation of the device.

The use of hover boards had led to a number of injuries recorded by Dubai police, citing misuse and malpractice as risks to the users as well as people close to them. The regulations also stipulate that the users wear safety gears as specified in the user manuals issued by the manufacturers. and only use the machines in assigned places.

The smart wheels should not be used by children below 13 years of age and those weighing less than 40kgs. We see many small kids using these boards. It is the responsibility of the parents to make sure that they buy gifts appropriate to their children's age and they also follow the safety guidelines. 

So, here's a clear message; Hoverboard users, Beware!
