I don't see the Segway being a big hit with seniors, many of whom may find it diffcult just to mount and dismount the thing due to age-related health issues.
I've recently seen a Segway user ride his into the main post office on Hope Street and go up the wheelchair ramp to mail his letters at the letter drop, while standing on the thing. He then turned it around and rode it back down the ramp and outside onto the sidewalk.
Another user I saw on a weekday morning around 7:30 was stopped at the limit line on Church St at Calderon and was signaling for a left turn onto Calderon, like a vehicle or bicycle would.
If they are considered pedestrians and allowed on sidewalks, then does that say they should not be in the roadway like a vehicle?
Don't miss out on the discussion!
