A while back, Disney World made the decision to ban Segways from the park because “they can go faster than 12 mph” which is a danger to other guests. And now three disabled people are, of course, suing the company.
“The suit filed Friday says they’re among an estimated 4,000 to 7,000 similarly disabled people who have turned to Segways as mobility tools,” according to an article by the AP.
Okay, I can understand that it might be an inconvenience to not be able to use a Segway when you’re used to riding one, but Disney World is a private company who has made a decision that’s in the best interests of the majority. It’s not like they’re banning wheelchairs. There is a solution, however. If the problem with Segways is the speed, why not have an arsenal of speed-governed Segways that can be loaned out to guests. You could even paint them to look like Goofy or something.
