Any approval of the Segway for use on the sidewalks of would alter the basic balance between human and machine in the city. The Segway presents clear potential risk to children, seniors, persons with disability and other legitimate sidewalk users with the sole benefit economically to some corporation. Pedestrians are already a vulnerable and beleaguered group; it would be wrong and unsafe to make the legitimate sidewalk demographics share scarce sidewalk space with any motorized vehicle whether it is called an "Electronic Personal Assistive Mobility Devices", Human Transporter” or a Segway. Also, if the Segway is approved the floodgates will open for pocket crotch rockets, electric tricycles, electric go-cars etc. all under the catch phrase "Electronic Personal Assistive Mobility Devices".

Any redefinition by any municipal government of the word “pedestrian” for the benefit of a single company is outrageously inappropriate and would provide preferential sidewalk access to the wealthy for the sole economic benefit of some corporation.
