British MPs Defy Law By Riding Segways On London Streets
A group of British MPs yesterday defied the law by riding a convoy of Segways on London roads. The protest aimed to question why the use of such vehicles is currently illegal in Britain on roads, pavements or parks – in other words, anywhere other than on private property.
Lembit Opik MP has been lobbying the Government to allow electric personal vehicles (EPVs) to use cycle facilities and public roads for some years. At yesterday’s ride he said: “The claim that Segways are illegal beggars belief! As far as I can see, there isn’t a scrap of evidence for this in British Law.”
He went on to praise the government for its current consultation on the issue.
