(KSL News) A ban on skateboards and longboards will go into effect in Utah County tomorrow, but it won't stick around for long.

Longboarders and county commissioners have been meeting this week to revise the rules so that the trails can be shared by boarders, skaters, cyclists and pedestrians.

The ban was put in place after a child was hurt in a collision with a skateboarder last month. The new rules will outline safety measures to be taken to make sure such accidents don't happen again.
