Segways may require drivers licenses in Massachusetts


In an effort to get rid of those loud gas-powered mini-bikes that are all the rage right now, the Massachusetts Legislature is considering a bill that would lump Segways into the same category as the little crotch rockets. For Segway owners this would mean no sidewalks, no one under 16 and not going over 20 mph (not that that would be a problem since the Segway's top speed is 12.5 mph).

UPDATE: Eric Fleming from Segway writes in the comments that the Boston Globe and Associated Press got this wrong, and that the law in fact wouldn't apply to the Segway HT.
