Sidewalk Safety

The new bully on the sidewalk!! The segway SUV!!
Note: on November 25th, 2004 the San Francisco Board of Supervisors voted 8-2 to ban Segway scooters from the sidewalks of San Francisco.
The reason we have sidewalks is to provide a safe place for pedestrians away from vehicles! That is why San Francisco passed legislation back in 1940 stating:

SEC. 86. VEHICLES SHALL NOT BE DRIVEN ON SIDEWALKS. It shall be unlawful for the operator of any vehicle to drive such vehicle within any sidewalk area except at a permanent or temporary driveway. (Ord. 890, App. 10/24/40)
Segway scooters are simply additional dangerous vehicles. They we will only further promote sedentary lifestyles, endanger users, and cause collisions with pedestrians.


Not only banned from the sidewalks of New York, but the roads, Greenways, park paths and all other public ways. Segways and other electric scooters are only legal on private property.
