Check out this excellent video shot by my good friend and colleague, Dynamic Doug Donovan.
Check out Randallstown resident Steve David commuting to his job downtown on a Segway (with an assist from the subway system). Check him out cruising on the road with cars with ease. Check him out on the elevator. Check out awesome David as he glides along the sidewalk, hand in pocket.
Beyond the fact that David just looks extremely cool, consider the fact that his initial investment for a Segway was $5,000.
Then add in the fact that David figures he's saving $1,200 a year on gas, not to mention the money he's saving on wear and tear on his car. Even better for environmental lovers out there, the 12-mile portion of David's Segway commute saves 8 pounds of carbon a day.
I just have two questions:
How in the world has he managed to avoid getting run over by Baltimore's drivers? (Hey, they scare me when I'm just trying to cross the street on foot.) And, how amazing is it that he hasn't been mugged on his way in or out of town yet? (I know I know. That's a low blow. I kid, you know I love our city.)
Let's all do David a favor and watch out for him on the road.
