Outta my Segway!
Faster than a strolling crack dealer! More maneuverable than a mountain bike! It’s cops on … Segway scooters?!
Just when I thought life couldn’t get any stranger, I was walking down Hennepin Avenue last Wednesday and saw this:
According to the officer facing the camera, the scooters can do about 12 mph–faster than most people can run, at least for sustained periods.
A block down the road, I saw these guys using boring old human-powered transport.
In a game of chicken, who do you think would win?
