SUNY Cortland Issues Ban on “Hoverboards”

Local News

SUNY Cortland has joined a number of colleges that has issued a ban on hoverboards.

SUNY Cortland officials issued an email Tuesday that said hoverboards or self-balancing scooters are no longer allowed on campus.

The ban comes after several consumers have reported that the devices unexpectedly combusted. The problem appears to be poorly made batteries and defective chargers.

Additionally, dozens of users have reported injuries due to falls from the scooters.

At least 20 colleges and universities have chosen to ban the devices.
