I WANT MY SCOOTER!:Year after introduction Segway continues to stir the imagination (The Associated Press, November 11, 2002)
Dean Kamen's Segway scooter was unveiled nearly a year ago, with a promise it would change transportation. Most people still are walking, but the device has been tested all over the country, more than half the states have rewritten laws to allow them on sidewalks as the machine attracts cheers and some jeers.
Letter carriers, police officers and meter readers from New Hampshire to San Francisco have had a ball testing the Segway and believe it’s useful--but many of their bosses have yet to buy.
Thirty-one states have rewritten laws to allow the Segway onto sidewalks, but the motorized scooter remains unavailable to the public.
How can you not have them available in time for Christmas? Posted by Orrin Judd at November 11, 2002 12:19 PM
