OMG, that just looks ridiculous. Something would have to change in our fundamental car values for that to be in any way accepted by society.
At first I misread the title and thought the vehicle went 200 MPH, not mpg. Big difference.

RandomAnthony | 14536 comments Huh. That's interesting, Jim. Can't be much more dangerous than a motorcycle, eh?

Sarah | 13815 comments On the plus side, that Segway thing is so dorky looking taht it might negate the main problem that scooter drivers have around here -- theft.
My bassist's scooter was stolen two weeks after he got it. And Zu foiled a scooter-jacking downtown last spring.
Since most of the stolen scooters (and cars) are used for joyriding, this might cut down on that. Ain't nobody gonna joyride in one of those.
