Kid with skateboard.These presentations help young people, their families and teachers learn how to travel safely by skateboard.

Skateboard users must take extra care to check for vehicles coming in or out of driveways, just as they would when walking. They must also follow their usual kerb drill when crossing a road.

Skateboards are classified as wheeled recreational vehicles. They are legally allowed on footpaths, as long as the rider shows consideration for other users, including pedestrians.
