This is a real parody. Maybe they should ban cars and open the streets for Segways. You would even be twice as fast with 12 mph because there would be no traffic jams. In Cologne there are ground-level entrances into most of the the subways and you’re allowed to take a bicycle with you. The combination of Segways and a kind of »drive-in« subway trains would be a killer application for public transport in big cities.
