A Satisfying Gallery Of People Crashing On Segways

Unless you're taking a tour of a tech school campus, or you're a mall cop lording over a sea of shoppers, it's hard to feel cool while riding a Segway, and even harder to look cool when you crash!

Segways were advertised as the personal transportation of the future when first unveiled back in 2001, but they didn't catch on with the public as the manufacturers had hoped.

They may not have changed the world of personal transportation, but Segways are an endless source of amusement- for viewers who get to watch riders lose control and hit the pavement hard!

And your point is...?
There's a certain level of skill required to operate one of these machines. Just like a motorcycle or car. As for myself, I would probably be careful not to ride one beside a cliff's edge. But if I saw in the news that somebody drove off a cliff, I wouldn't stop driving my car altogether.

Me in Chicago (on probably the same tour as one of the guys in the vids above). The guy in your pics looks like he is trying to balance on a Segway that isn't even running. If it was it would have been backing into him pretty hard in the first picture. The videos in the article seem to be working again and it's about 50-50 between uncoordinated people, and people trying to do things that are beyond their capabilities. A couple of them are kids who are a little too young to even be on them.

Don't know about Segway crashes, but it looks like you crashed their Photobucket account . Enjoyed riding them in DC, Chicago and Jamaica. Not sure how the people above were crashing since the Photobucket account is over bandwidth but as long as you keep the wheels away from other objects you should have no problems. I have seen some very uncoordinated people trying them though, pretty scary.
