Employees in Chicago detained more than 16 thousands of smuggled hoverboards worth about 6 million dollars.

Контрабанда пришла из Китая уже с маркировкой ULб, которая дает “ложное чувство безопасности”. На некоторых ховербордах были наклеены поддельные логотипы Samsung.

William Ferrara, head of smuggling withdrawal operations, said that the batteries of seized products do not meet safety standards, and some chargers do not automatically turn off when the battery is charged. This is what caused the fires.

As the customs officers found out, the main part of this cargo was brought to the USA on board the cargo ship.

In the US, the Consumer Product Safety Commission in 19 states investigates at least 40 hoverboard fire reports.

Previously, ForumDaily wrote that New York activists require legalize riding electronic scooters. And in California, on the contrary, tightened rules for the use of hoverboards.

The new law, which came into force on 1 in January of 2016, prohibits persons under the age of 16 from using the hoverboard for driving on public roads. Owners of hoverboards are advised to travel on roads with a speed limit of up to 35 miles per hour (56 km / h).

Amazon said, что вернет деньги покупателям ховербордов, которые обеспокоены возможностью возгорания этого чудо-девайса.

The California Highway Patrol will strictly monitor the implementation of this law over the next five years, punishing violators with a fine of 250 dollars.
