Hardened Segway criminals rampaging along the lake foreshore

By johnboy 4 July 2011 25

Segway scooters are famously not legal to ride in Australia either on the footpath, or upon the road.

But it is the way of scofflaw criminals to video themselves in breach of the law and publish it for all the world to see on YouTube.

On a side note, the founder of Segway Jimi Heselden died late last year after riding one off a cliff into a river in “non suspicious” circumstances.

Meanwhile, the actual inventor of the Segway (Dean Kamen) drinks his own piss on stage, and was doing it long before Bear Grylss made it pouplar.

To my knowledge, their power and physical size make them illegal on all public property. I would think if these are legit, then it is by virtue of the NCA controlling land use and having the power to grant exemption on permit and with appropriate public liability cover.

Have to say though, I blame the idiot using these. Aside from who would want to look like a dorky mall cop… you’ve got legs!

You make it sound like it was foolishness on his part, he was being polite and moved to one side to let someone coming the other way on the path get by. Carelessness, I admit, but you attempt to create a false impression by with-holding all the facts. For shame

These things are all over the place, and lots of people use them with no ill effects. We should legalise them to remove the criminal element and to minimise harm.

Would you mind though if i installed a 2HP electric motor on my bicycle and overtook you driving on Northborne? As far as i can tell, the segway motor is 7 times the legal limit.

Holy misinformation, Batman! (With thanks to niftydog.)

He was not the founder of Segway. He bought the company behind Segway in 2009.
