Segway has banned Hoverboard scooters to ride in Public
An amazing invention of a Hover Board has been swiftly getting hype amongst the public in the world of technology. It’s quite shocking for the scooter rider as it has been recently been made illegal to ride in the public places. It can only be used to ride on private property, said Segway guidance from the Department for Transport. It has been explained that it failed to meet the legal requirements and not safe for being used in the public areas. The rules are pointed out by the CPS (Crown Prosecution Service). The Department of Transport said, “Appropriate safety clothing should be worn at all times” whilst driving a Segway. It warned further, “Any user of such a vehicle on a public road is likely at the very least to be committing the offences of using the vehicle without insurance and using the vehicle without an excise licence”.
We’ve seen before the excitement among the public for the machine, celebrities sharing pictures on social media while riding the wheels, fascinating and becoming popular among the general public. Brooklyn Beckham, Chris Brown, Justin Bieber and Wiz Khalifa have all posted pictures of their newfound toy. These self balancing boards have never been legal on the footpaths or roads in the UK as previously announced by the Metropolitan Police, yet no one has ever been prosecuted for such offence. However now, there is a big question on the future of this eye capturing technology.
