More than 500 skateboarders and cyclists have been warned or spoken with about new safety rules at the University of Utah over the last four months, and now police will begin issuing citations to violators.
"What they've been doing is stopping students who might be going over the speed limit or engaging in reckless behavior and just talking about the policy and making sure everyone is up to speed," said Alexandra Zimmermann, SAFE (Sidewalks Are for Everyone) campaign coordinator at the U.'s commuter services department.
"Sidewalk ambassadors," or commuter services and contracted security staff, hand out brochures and let people know about a new 10 mph speed limit and other restrictions. The rule applies to anyone on campus.
