Police Don't Want To Give Up Recalled Segways

from the just-one-more-day,-please? dept

Despite the well-known Segway recall last week, a police department in Juneau, Alaska is asking if they can keeping using their Segways for now, if they promise to charge up the batteries (the recall was because batteries on a low charge could cause people to fall off the machines). What’s odd, is that the police department doesn’t even own these Segways. They’re testing them out for a couple of months and will make a decision when they’re done. In the meantime, it sounds like they’re so hooked on the scooters that the idea of giving them up to get the problem fixed is too difficult to handle.
