From the SMH:

“The ACT government should drop its plans for a cycling city and look instead to get Canberrans commuting to work on Segways and electric scooters, according to the Planning Institute of Australia.

The institute wants the city’s bike lanes upgraded into mini-highways for “personal mobility devices,” and traffic laws changed to allow the use of the vehicles.

The territory’s strategy to get people out of cars and increase the use of Canberra’s cycling network is “fundamentally flawed” and will not deliver the desired outcome, according to PIA’s ACT president Vivian Straw

Why not?

I don’t want a monopoly created by legalising one companies products. Segways can be built pretty cheaply these days, so they’re not the ‘cutting edge’ of technology like they used to be.

As long as they adjust the law for all devices, including pedal assisted bicycles, then i don’t mind.

I don’t want segway getting a single exception

Why not?
