(KSL News) Soon Utah County longboarders and skateboarders won't be allowed to ride on any Utah County-run trails.

County officials say the sports are too unsafe on trails because most boards don't have brakes.

Some skaters say the ban will force them onto city streets next to vehicles. They believe the county should instead impose restrictive hours on the trails.

The ban could take effect as soon as August 10.
