Boston Residents vs. Tourists On Segways
BOSTON (CBS) | There’s a battle rolling onto Boston’s sidewalks pitting pedestrians against tourists on futuristic wheels.
Residents in the North End have been complaining about an onslaught of Segway riders invading their neighborhood.
“They’re a pain in the butt, especially on like Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays,” said John Gargano. “It creates a nuisance. It creates a hazard.” That’s why the Boston City Council members voted unanimously to ban Segways from city sidewalks.
