Post subject:  Hoverboards

Many of you might have seen a hoverboard rolling down YSW Main Street these last few week and months. Quite a few children of friends have received one under the Christmas tree and they're becoming an increasingly common sight, similar to drones that you can see more and more over Lamma.

What's the official position on this? I've asked our brand-new Police Chief, Ms. Solid Kwan, for comment, but besides a lot of legalese, I've only got a link so far and this notice has been going up, which basically says, they're all illegal in any public place:

There's a Govt. press release about "Mobility Devices: mini-motor cycles, motor-driven bicycles, motor-driven skateboards and electric unicycles":
http://www.info.gov.hk/gia/general/201512/09/P201512090307.htm

"In order to ensure road safety and smooth flow of traffic, electric bicycle, hoverboard and unicycle should not be used on roads. Possible summons action under Cap 228 S4(8) may be initiated against those on ride or drive it. Transport Department has recently published a (Chin.) notice "LCQ19 : Mobility devices" on Facebook."

Reading the Govt. press release, all these devices cannot be used ANYWHERE PUBLIC, except “inside individual private properties, recreational or sports venues or other non-public places, in compliance with the rules and requirements on the use imposed by those in-charge of the venue.”

So they’re illegal almost everywhere on Lamma?
No details on registration (see below) available as they're NOT allowed in any public spaces and are not "motor vehicles".

And whilst not trying to be a further spoilsport, I saw firsthand over Christmas, someone toppling off (well, hurtling over would be a better description), resulting in being knocked out and suffering a broken wrist too boot. Dangerous thingies, these. Mind you, I enjoyed having a go :D
