If walking or driving the streets of San Francisco is not quite enough adventure for you, try joining the growing number of people who are seeing Bay Area sights while balancing on board a Segway, that two-wheeled electric vehicle that was once hailed as the future of all personal travel. Not only will you see tourist landmarks, but you?ll learn a new skill and face just enough of a challenge to keep you, well, on your toes. The Segway, formerly called the IT when it was first unveiled in 2001 by inventor Dean Kamen, was the object of considerable media speculation as people no less prescient than Apple?

After six weeks of construction and wiring, it all came down to three days of intense competition for students in the robotics teams from Crescenta Valley and Clark Magnet high schools. The atmosphere at the Great Western Forum was so tense you could cut it with wire cutters. The pressure so intense, competitors couldn't remember simple things like the gravitational pull of the moon. This was not the time to forget your basic calculus skills. This was competition.

Tonight, she was dressed in a St. John’s pantsuit and a pink-Mohawk motorcycle helmet, but her vehicle surprised me. It was a 2009, 150 lb. Modified Segway PT Patroller, useful for crowd control, off-road adventure and golf.

New laws will go into effect this year with goals to make the roads safer and drivers more responsible, according to a spokesperson from the Crescenta Valley Sheriff’s Station. “The biggest misconception [about the new laws] is that the cellphone law goes into effect on Jan. 1,” said Sgt. Mark Slater. “It begins on July 1, 2008.” The cellphone law Slater referred to prohibits minors under the age of 18 to drive while using a wireless telephone, including a hands-free device.
