Skaters risk fines on cycle paths

SKATERS using cycle paths could be fined up to Sk2,000 (€48), forcing them onto roads, according to the Road Users Association.

Its chairman, Miloš Souček, warned that this could cause accidents because "some skaters could reach speeds of 20 to 30 kilometres per hour and drivers don't notice them."

There are no special routes for skaters in Slovakia, despite the growing number of people using skates as a form of transport.
