Hoverboards Banned in Dixon, Illinois

Posted:

DIXON - Hoverboards are all the rage and the city of Dixon, Illinois has banned them in its downtown district, over safety concerns.

The Dixon City Council voted to ban them, adding hoverboards to their current ordinance, which already prohibits skateboards, roller blades, and bicycle riding.  The council's vote was 3 to 1, to ban hoverboards.

The mayor says people can ride them anywhere else.  He was the only one who voted against it.
