A $500 Segway knockoff? No thanks

We'd rather walk

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 "GOB version" 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.
