Segways are banned or have restrictions in many places. They are motorized transport systems that don’t require registration and do not meet the requirements for braking in most jurisdictions to be “road safe”, yet are deemed too dangerous due to their speed to be used on public walkways.
Places they are known to be banned from General public use are:
New York City
There are many other cities that have restrictions in place, however those locations have strict bans with heavy fines attached.
