The Segway may even be banned in the UK – I’ve certainly never seen one tootling around the streets of South London. So it’s either banned, or too shameful for anyone to be seen using in public.
Anyway, this update is about the Dutch, who have lifted their ban on Segways which are now not against the law any more. They were originally axed due to safety reasons, but you’re now allowed to motor eccentrically along at 16mph on Dutch roads – and disabled users can do 4mph on the pavements.
Not that anybody actually will. Although after a nine-hour stint in a specialist Dutch cafe, perhaps it might seem like novel way to get back to the hotel.
