Accident Spotlights Safety Concerns With Segways

Entrepreneur Dean Kamen invented the Segway with the intention of revolutionizing human transportation. In reality, though, Kamen created another device with the potential for human injury. One recent example of this was the tragic death of Englishman James Heselden in September, who fell off a cliff and into a river while riding his Segway. Heselden was not only a Segway user, but the then-owner of the Segway company, which he purchased from Kamen in 2009. This accident and a recent study spotlight safety concerns with Segways.
