If it looks too good to be true, as they say, it probably is. That would explain our fear of getting on one of these Segway knockoffs.
The "Chariot Scooter" goes for $500, according to Uber-Review, while the real Segway costs around $4,000 to $5,000 (and way more if you bid on the " " on eBay). And even while charging 10 times more money, the authentic Segway hasn't been able to make it foolproof. The $500 model? We wouldn't even want to guess.
It may max out at 10 mph, but that still leaves plenty of room for personal-injury lawyers to work with. Just look at the face on that guy in the picture. To us, it says it all.
