Norway Arrests First Segway Drunk Driver

After lifting a ban on Segways last month, Norwegian officials have made its first arrest of a person driving their electric footbikething while intoxicated. A man was riding the dorkmobile erratically in central Oslo when he was pulled over.

According to the BBC, the man was exhibiting "strange behavior" while riding around in the center of Oslo, and he appeared to be struggling to balance. The arrest was made as a result of the weird behavior, but a blood test has not yetconfirmed whether the man was actually drunk. From the BBC:

They are still awaiting the results of a blood test, but Finn Erik Groenliveien - head of Oslo traffic police - is already concerned Segway users may think rules about drinking and driving don't apply to them.

Segways were previously illegal in Norway because their high speed would require them to be classified as mopeds. They were eventually legalized out of hope that they'd "revolutionize traffic patterns," the BBC reports.
