The Economist worries about too many Segways.

The Economist worries about too many Segways. Segway tours: Two wheels good, two legs bad : "The proliferation of Segways speeding around major tourist attractions is not without controversy. In June, Boston banned the vehicles from its pavements and parks, attracting the ire of burgeoning Segway tour companies. To prove his point, a city councillor got a Segway-mounted colleague to ram into him (“Let me tell you, it hurt”). The gizmos have long been prohibited in public places in New York City, Hong Kong and London. Wherever Segways are allowed, someone is probably making an effort to rein in their use on safety grounds"
