The S.F. Chronicle carries a story about the Postal Service’s trial of Segway scooters in Bagdhad on the Bay. The USPS bought 40 scooters at $9,000 per.
Scott Tucker, the Postal Service district manager for the San Francisco area, said the Segways would be used on five routes in the Pacific Heights and Steiner Street Station areas, some of the hilliest in the city.
The scooters are apparently sidewalk-legal in 24 states, California not among them. This, San Francisco being San Francisco, is causing some controversy.
