First Segway sighting

I was amazed to see a Segway whizz passed me whilst I was sitting at an outdoor cafe last week in Vienna.
This is the first time I’ve seen one actually using one, outside of the odd promotional demonstration. It was going quite fast and looked great fun.
Considering how new much of Dubai is, you’d have thought Segways would be ideal here in the new developments that have gone up. Unfortunately there are really too many bumps and kerbs to make it practical to use one here, as most wheelchair users would confirm. I expect that will change in a year or two, as everything gets dug up to be made more pedestrian, Segway and wheelchair friendly.
