BILL NUMBER:S794

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the general business law, in relation to notice requirements in
the manufacture, assembling and sale of roller skates and skate boards

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL:
The purpose of this bill is to protect skate boarders and roller
skaters by requiring a warning instruction to be affixed by label on
the outside of the box in which the item is sold and included in the
buyer's guide or user's manual.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:
Section 1. Amends the General Business Law by adding a new section,
391-s. Defines roller skates and skate boards. Requires a warning
instruction to be included 1) on a label or hangtag on the outside of
the box in which the roller skates or skateboard is offered for sale
in order to be visible to the consumer and 2) within the user's guide
or instruction manual. Establishes a civil penalty of not more than
five hundred dollars for violations associated with this section.

Section 2. Effective Date

JUSTIFICATION:
This legislation responds to the large number of injuries related to
use of skate-boards and roller skates. The United States Consumer
Product Safety commission (CPSC) warns consumers that in-line skating
can be a dangerous sport if appropriate safety gear is not used. A
majority of the injuries were related to one's wrists, arms, and
legs. Moreover, according to the American Academy of Pediatrics, an
estimated 17.7 million youth under the age of eighteen participate in
in-line skating, roller-skating and skate-boarding.

Over the past several years, recreational skateboarding has seen an
increase in popularity. In 1998, an estimated 5.8 million children
under the age of eighteen in the United States participated in
skate-boarding. Skate-boarding injuries account for an estimated
50,000 hospital visits each year according to the American Academy of
Pediatrics. In addition, among children and teenagers in the United
States, 1500 were hospitalized due to injuries that arose from
skateboarding. According to the CPSC, six out of every ten
skate-board injuries occur with children under the age of fifteen.
Sprains, fractures, contusions and abrasions are the most common
skateboarding injuries.

Appropriate protective gear is essential for safety when skating and
skate-boarding. Protective gear includes wrist guards, knee pads,
gloves and elbow pads have been known to prevent injuries. These
protective devices are designed to absorb the impact of a fall, avoid
gravel bums and scrapes as well as fractured and broken bones. This

legislation will significantly reduce the number of injuries if
protective gear is worn thereby decreasing the likelihood of hospital
visits and its associated medical expenses.

EXISTING LAW:
None.
