The Segway is for show-offs with more money than sense | Julie Bindel
I hate the two-wheeled monstrosities – and all who ride on them – almost as much as I hate selfie sticks and microscooters. You have been warned
When I heard that Usain Bolt was run over by a cameraman riding a Segway scooter, it reminded me of how much I loathe new-fangled crazes and the folk who adopt them.
The Segway, a two-wheeled, self-balancing, battery-powered electric vehicle is derived from the word segue, meaning smooth transition. But the transition for pedestrians avoiding these monstrosities is about as smooth as a badger’s crotch.
Surely the Segway will soon be as obsolete as the Liberal Democrat party?
