Skateboarding a Crime?


Skaters may soon be forced off their boards at UCSB, as administrators are in the midst of investigating complaints about one of the campus’s most popular modes of transportation. Roughly 25 skateboard-related accidents happen each month on campus, some of which result in passersby being hit. The second of two town hall meetings about the problem will be held today in the University Center’s Harbor Room at 11:30 a.m.
