NYPD buys into Segway

The New York City Police Department has become the latest government body in the US to embrace the famous Segway, once touted as a world-changing vehicle. The force has specifically ordered 10 i2 Police units, which are different from the basic i2 mainly for their extra indicators and storage space. Officers will use their Segways to patrol areas generally inaccessible to cars, such as Central Park and Coney Island; some of the other claimed advantages include faster response times and zero emissions. Their range, however, is limited to 23 miles before a recharge is required. Each vehicle should cost the NYPD $5,660.
