COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) – Columbus State University has banned hoverboards from campus due to the recent concerns by the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission and the potential impact the devices may have on campus and fire safety.

CSU made this announcement Tuesday morning that stated they plan to monitor the ongoing federal investigation regarding hoverboard safety.

The university has also added hoverboards to the list of items not allowed in CSU residence halls.

The ban is effective immediately, and CSU may reconsider this provisional ban based on the recommendations from national consumer safety investigations or the University System of Georgia.
