The alderman who represents downtown today called for banning Segways from the lakefront path.
The two-wheeled electric one-person vehicles that can be rented downtown are being targeted by Ald. Brendan Reilly, 42nd.
The proposal calls for fines of $25 to $200 for violators. Police or other officials would be exempted from the ban.Segways seem so silly to us (see link here). If this passes, tourists are going to be upset.
