CLEARWATER - It looks odd scooting around, on two big wheels that softly hum as they spin. And its driver often looks even stranger, swaying and wobbling just to steer it around.

As part of the Residences at Windward Passage - high-end condominiums being built in the Island Estates neighborhood - developers Larry Cooper and Sal Haider unveiled a plan Wednesday to keep at least 10 Segways on-hand for residents to use when traffic gets ugly.
