Minnesota Supreme Courts Rule that You Can Legally Drive a Segway While Intoxicated

In a 2-1 decision yesterday the Minnesota Supreme Court threw out a DWI Charge against a Medina MN man who was pulled over on a Segway while intoxicated.

Their reason was that people on Segways are pedestrians and not drivers, so this law does not apply. The average Segways top speed is 12 miles per hour, and even though this gentleman was on the road  weaving in and out of traffic he beat the charge.

Thankfully with the weather conditions in Minnesota, most people in the state do not have them out all year long, avoiding some chances of this being a familiar scenario.
