Abstract

This paper summarises skating regulation around Australia, focusing on Tasmania. Such analysis is timely: the Australian Road Rules adopted in December 1999 expand skating from recreation to a mode of transport whose legitimacy assumes access to roads and footpaths, and deploys complex politics of identity and space, citizenship and access, and mobility.

Additional Information:

This work derives from a consultancy for the Tasmanian State Government Department of Infrastructure, Energy and Resources conducted in 2000, and draws from additional research funded in 1999 through the-then Australian Research Council's small grants scheme, which focused on a national comparative analysis of the regulation of skating in capital city local governments around Australia.
