    I think they should be illegal as firstly if your going down hill you could fall of and seriously hurt yourself or you can crash. 🙂

    Swegways shouldn’t be illegal because people wasted £200 on a swegway for nothing and many people have just got there one and there surprised that swegways are illegal if hands free swegways are illegal the ones with the handle bars should be illegal

    I think segways should be illegal because loads of people get hurt, and why can’t people walk, go with a scooter or a bike?

    It was right to make them illegal because if someone was on full speed using a segway they could really injure an innocent person and they could go to hospital. So that’s one of my reasons my other reason is that if two people on segway’s bashed in to each over it could be a serious injury.

    I think segways should be illegal because they have caused may injuries in the past and riding them on a footpath could hurt a child so the best place to ride them s on the road however if they think there not there not safe on the road then there is no point riding them.

    As the post said there have been many injuries with the segways. This is only because people can’t control them. I believe that people should be trained to use segways otherwise they should just use a bike or a scooter.

    I think segways should stay illegal seen as many people get injured badly by them adults get injured and children , some adults drive them across long roads thinking it’s safe that’s why it should stay illegal.

    I think they should not be illegal because they are fun to go around on I a interesting way of transport. Although they are allot of money they are good fun and people who have bought them cant even take them out!!!

    I think they should be illegal because they can’t be controlled so then there is an accident just waiting around the corner. Even though it’s against the law people don’t listen to the law people still do it.

    I think segways should be illegal especially if they are to be ridden on pathways. I think they should be illegal because if they are to be ridden pathways they could knock someone over and can seriously injure them badly they are very dangerous. However, in some ways they are very fun to use people enjoy ridding on them!

    I agree with segway boards being illegal because, although they are cool to play around with and show off to your friends, they can cause several injuries such as: bumping into people, tripping downhill, driving into toddlers and small children, accidents in the road e.t.c.

    I agree because they could hit someone in-front of them or fall over and have a nasty accident so the path will have to be sectioned off witch means the residents wont be able to pass but they can always use the cycle path . And i disagree because the people on the segways can’t go on the road because they might get hit by a type of transport or they might not be able to stop them selves.

    These are the consequences !

    we think both because they cost allot of money and it would be amazing to go on one .. it will be illegal because people could get heart and that they could get sent to the police for that . but i realy want a segway or just to ride on it for 1 day
