Segways, the revolutionary two-wheeled self-propelled vehicles, have become popular for tourists. Segway tours allow a guide with radio-controlled devices to deliver historic tours efficiently, covering much more ground in less time than walking tours. Despite, or perhaps because of, their popularity, Segways have come to be seen by some as nuisances. The historic city of Prague recently enacted a policy to ban Segways from the historic centre.
