FAO Stephen Ladyman MP, and for the Prime Minister We, the undersigned, think that the Segway HT is a great environmentally friendly mode of transport that will offer a great alternative to the car, particularly for short, one-person journeys. We would like to see the current prejudice against the Segway ended, and the vehicle legalised, with the same rights as a bicycle, and consideration given as to where else it may be appropriate to use (eg in pedestrianised areas, on wide pavements, etc.)
www.derby.ac.uk - James Brown - Transport and Travel Manager - University of Derby - We see Segways as the future for short journeys in the UK, and want to do everything we can to get them legalised for use in a safe and responsible manner.
