U Of I Places Ban On Hoverboards

(Urbana, IL) — You won’t be seeing a lot of hoverboards at the University of Illinois. The school is banning the motorized two-wheeled scooters from its dorms. The ban may expand to the entire Champaign-Urbana campus. Officials are citing safety reasons following reports that the batteries on the devices can ignite if overheated. At least 20 colleges across the country have similar bans.
