16 segwayscooterA recent ruling in the UK has just rendered the Segway next to unusable in public. After the case of a factory worker getting fined for damaging a pavement by riding his Segway on it, the magistrate decided that the two-wheeled vehicles have no business being on a pavement. With Segways already banned from roads (for not being safe enough), users can only ride them in golf clubs, warehouses, shopping centers and on private ground with the landowner’s permission of course. With so many areas you can’t use the Segway on, it’s pretty pointless to even own one there – they might as well ban people from having the vehicle, at least then they won’t have an unusable piece of metal taking up space in the garage. What do you think of the magistrate’s latest ruling? Are you a Segway user yourself?
