Any Excuse To Use This Picture

The City of Toronto has decided that “Segways cannot be operated legally on Toronto streets or sidewalks.” They also face limited usability in city parks, and the Ministry of Transport won’t give them license plates, so you can’t take them on most roads. Where does that leave a Segway driver to take his new toy out for a spin? Just about nowhere. Phew. Naturally, Segway of Ontario is unimpressed with the rulings. But, as the Segway riding Gob would say, come on! It’s difficult enough to navigate city sidewalks with speeding grannies on motorized scooters doing their best to play lopsided bumper cars with pedestrians.
