Genius Idea: Segway Ban Extended

Rioting in the 21st Century.So much hype.It might have been billed as the greatest invention of all time, but now in 2017, the Segway has been banned in most parts of Prague, Czech Republic.

First banned earlier this year in Prague District 1 (the historical part of the city), despite the Segway Czech Republic Association’s hard lobbying and pleas, that ban has now been extended to District 2 and parts of District 10.

Tacking the ban onto a traffic law amendment, Segways are now considered motor vehicles and any riders will be quickly caught and fined 2,000 kc (roughly $100).Wedding kitsch achieved: Bridal Segways.

Unfortunately, Dean Kamen, no one seems to appreciate your genius.
