· Rollerbladers, inline-skaters, and skateboarders are considered to be pedestrians under the traffic code; however, actual pedestrians have the right-of-way.
· Rollerbladers can use footpaths and sidewalks (not bike paths).
· Rollerbladers can use roads but only under certain conditions. Avoid roads with heavy traffic and roads with speed limits over 30 km/h.
Protective Gear: Helmets, elbow pads, and kneepads are a good idea. Most injuries are on the hand, wrist, or elbow as the rider tries to break a fall.
