I was on vacation in Florida five years ago and saw a Segway scooter for the first time. I promptly thought it was the coolest thing I ever saw. I never bought one because, well, I really don’t know where I would ride it. But I really thought it was neat.
Yesterday, Segway got hit with the worst possible scenario: its owner was killed riding a Segway, setting off articles and blogs offering up a fact that has long been out there and gone unnoticed: these scooters are unreasonably dangerous.
