Concise explanation of the particular statutory provisions under which the rule is enacted and how these provisions authorize or require the rule:

Section 53B-2-106 authorizes Rule R805-1 by authorizing the president of each higher educational institution, with approval of the relevant board of trustees, to enact rules for the administration and operation of the institution. Section 53B-3-101 authorizes Rule R805-1 by allowing the Board of Regents to pass rules and regulations governing parking and traffic on campuses and to enforce the rules and regulations by all appropriate methods. Section 53B-3-101 further allows the Board of Regents to delegate this same authority to the president of each institution so long as the relevant board of trustees approves.

Summary of written comments received during and since the last five-year review of the rule from interested persons supporting or opposing the rule:

No written comments have been received.

Reasoned justification for continuation of the rule, including reasons why the agency disagrees with comments in opposition to the rule, if any:

The University of Utah's ability to ensure the safety of all persons on campus has been facilitated by Rule R805-1. Rule R805-1 regulates the operation of bicycles, skateboards and scooters on campus and provides clear standards on the proper operation of these means of transportation. Rule R805-1 further gives the University of Utah the ability to sanction students, staff, faculty and visitors who are in violation of this rule. The University of Utah has approximately 30,000 students and 17,000 employees who live/work/study together in a small geographic area. The use of bicycles, skateboards, and scooters on and around campus is very common and Rule R805-1 gives the University of Utah meaningful tools for the regulation of this type of traffic which enhances the safety of the University community. Therefore, this rule should be continued.
