PROVO CANYON — Utah county commissioners are going to be looking to see if more restrictions are needed along the Provo Canyon Trail to slow down bike riders and long boarders in heavily used areas.
While longboarders love the trail, Utah County Sheriff's Sgt. Spencer Cannon says every now and then they do have problems — for example, a longboarder or someone on a bike smacking into someone out for a walk.
That's why they already made the area right in front of Bridal Veil Valls a "walking only" zone. "If you approach the area on a long board or a bicycle, you have to stop, get off and walk your way through this particular zone," Cannon explained.
He says the goal isn't to ban boarders or bikers, but they do need to keep people safe.
