I admit that when I first heard of the Segway, I wasn’t completely sold on the concept because it only made sense for short term travel.
It’s appealing if you live in larger cities, but the problem I see is this . . . do you drive it on the road or on the sidewalk? BOTH answers deserve serious debate because of safety concerns.
“When the Segway Personal Transporter came out in 2001, inventor Dean Kamen said the self-balancing vehicles would revolutionize short-distance travel. At first, however, they appealed mostly to police, mall security crews and airport personnel.”
