You would think that any form of transportation that does not harm anyone else around you would be considered viable in an airport. Although, to some authorities that could be pretty far from the truth. I can understand riding a bike or even a motorcycle would be strictly forbidden within Airport territory. Although I thought it was acceptable to travel on a traditional Segway in public and especially in an airport. However, it looks as if using a hands free version may not be an acceptable form of transportation when traveling in an airport.
Just early last month there was a famous rapper who was taking down in an airport for traveling on his hand-free scooter Segway. Now I’m not sure if this rapper was doing anything to antagonize authorities, however they must have found him unsafe while riding on the transportation device.
After reading all this information I have to say that there has to be a reason for why the scooters are frowned upon in such an establishment. At the end of the day it is used for getting from point A to point B and if you’re in a rush while trying to board a plane I don’t see why using one of these would be such an issue.
Well, while the authorities weren’t looking we took our scooter for run and found it to be extremely convenient vs walking. We even found it to be easier to maneuver then the speedway ramps that are built into the ground. Traveling with luggage can be a bit of a drag, but definitely beats walking alone by foot.
Over the next few months we will begin to see just how popular these devices really are. Then we’ll really find out if the hands-free scooter will be the next wave of transportation in your local airport.
