1. Non-motorized vehicle--any wheeled vehicle which relies wholly or in part upon human or animal power for propulsion. This includes skates, cycles, skate boards and similar devices, but does not include wheelchairs operated by mobility impaired persons.

C. Non-motorized cycles

1. Non-motorized cycles are governed by state law. The cyclist has a right to use the streets and highways just as a motorist. However, the relative size of the cycle and the lack of safety devices make it extremely important that cycles be operated in accordance with the letter of the law.

2. Cycles may be ridden only in streets, highways, parking lots, and designated cycling paths. Cycles may not be ridden on any sidewalk unless that specific section of the sidewalk has been designated as a part of a cycling path.

3. Cycles and cyclists shall in all respects comply with applicable state laws and regulations, including but not limited to: turn signals, lighting, brakes, lane changing, etc.

4. Bicycle racks are provided throughout campus for parking. All parked bicycles should be locked in the rack.

2. Skates may not be operated in campus buildings at any time.


E. Prohibited Activities

1. Acrobatic maneuvers, stunts, trick riding, speed runs, or other movements designed to display or demonstrate the operator's physical ability to manipulate the non-motorized vehicle are prohibited on university property, except in areas specifically designated for such operations.

2. The operators of non-motorized vehicles are responsible for controlling the speed of such device so as not to endanger any pedestrian.


F. Penalties

Any person violating the provisions of this regulation may, upon conviction, be fined not more than $200.00. Additionally, the violation shall be reported to appropriate authorities for administrative action as deemed appropriate.

Non-motorized vehicles are legitimate means of transportation and may be operated on campus sidewalks and paths, provided they are used solely as a means of transportation and not for purposes prohibited by Paragraph A.4 above.
