Okay, these fun-looking Segway tours have been around Honolulu for some time. But Segways didn’t really catch my attention much until the other day.
A woman lost control of hers right in front of me. She and the Segway flew off the curb into oncoming traffic on busy Ala Moana Blvd in Honolulu. The amazing thing is that she was lucky and narrowly avoided being struck by a car.
If you decide to give these a go, please be super-careful. There have apparently been enough problems that a number of law firms now specialize in Segway accidents.
I wished that I had a video camera in hand to capture the accident, but did not. The following YouTube video looks virtually identical to the incident I witnessed:
