How safe is a Segway?

The utmost care and research has gone into ensuring that each Segway model is safe. The Segway’s balancing technology is truly revolutionary and provides an exceptional riding experience. Segways have redundant systems and sophisticated alerts built into its design, and many thousands of hours of use have demonstrated that the Segways are safe when used appropriately.
