Road signs banning Segways to be put up around Prague


The Prague road maintenance authorities have said they will begin putting up road signs banning Segways around the city on Friday. A ban on Segways in selected parts of Prague was imposed by Prague City Hall in August but was not observed due to a lack of road signs. The city hall regulation bans Segways in Prague 1, Holešovice and Letna and selected parts of the districts Vinohrady, Žižkov, Prahy 4, Smíchov and Liben. Segways are banned from pavements, cycle paths, pedestrian zones and streets. The ban was approved following numerous complaints from the public.
