Saving Money on Gas By Riding Segway

Marvin Graham rides to work on an electric powered stand-up scooter called a Segway, because he says it's saving him major money on gas.

As a Vice President at Intercounty Energy in Danville, he understands the value of conserving energy.

Graham tells 27 NEWSFIRST," it only takes about a dime a charge and you get about 24 miles. Compared that to gasoline you can figure out if you've got $3.00, say 30 times 24, it get's 700 miles to a gallon."

Marvin Graham says he sees a bright future for Segways, especially for people who live within a few miles of their work like he does.

    I applaud Marvin Graham for embracing zero-emission alternatives for commuting to work, or for anything else. Whether people Segway, cycle, or simply walk to work or to get around town, it all helps our environment, gets us into fresh air, and reduces our dependance on foreign oil.

    How would a segway rider be treated on the road. As a cyclist I have had some encounters of the red neck kind. I commute by bicycle to work when possible but the LFUCG has dropped the ball on bike lanes. Will we add segway lanes for those who can afford them when we don't have bike lanes?
