Britain bans the Segway August 24, 2006

Gutted! Just as I was thinking that a Segway was actually a good idea, then Britain decides they are actually a bad idea and bans them. You can’t ride them on the pavements as they are a powered wheeled vehicle, and you can’t ride them on the roads as they don’t meet EU traffic regulations. I love Britain and wouldn’t really want to live anywhere else, but sometimes our bureaucracy can be overwhelming and we end up in a nanny state.
