Rules for using segway

Every authorized segway rental, which is included in segway rent association, obey these rules. These rules, for increasing safety of using segway machines on land comunications, were defined by studies. Client and submitter of this studies was part of Prague city 1. The studies was made by Traffic faculty of ČVUT, institute of judicial expertise in traffic. Rules for use of segway machines, which has to be obey as clients, also púerator of this service, are following:

  1. User of segway is part of traffic on land comunications, which parts are also sidewalks and so, as a pedistrian he is required to:
    a) behave considerately and disciplined, so that it's actions was not life threatning, health or properity of others and also its own, to not damage life enviroment or lives of animals. He has to adapt his behaviour to constructive and transport technical status of surface route, weather conditions, situation in surface traffic and to his own abilities and health conditions
    b )follow the rules of surface traffic governed by law, the police instructions, or instructions from authorized person to manage the traffic on the roads,
    c )to follow the lighst , or even accompanying acoustic signals, such as crossing the road using pedestrian crossings, traffic signs, transport facilities and equipment for operational details.
  2. We recommend that identify the places or streets with an extremely narrow sidewalks and pedestrian foot traffic , and there - due to the particularities of local conditions – prohibit operation of Segways by written order for all segway operators . Identifying such places or streets is not the subject of this study.
  3. User Segways is considered as a pedestrian in compliance with the conditions, that speed of Segways must be technically limited to a maximum of 10 km/h. When using other modes, allowing to reach higher speed than the speed of walking, the user on Segway can not be considered pedestrians , so higher speeds than 10 km/h in places designated for pedestrians is prohibited. The speed limit have a practical importance for segway rental operators, so the group will not be faster than the slowest part of the group. Segways can not be used on a sidewalk on other, than 'walking mode', because it is not approved.
  4. When passing pedestrians on segway, user may not go faster than 6 km/h in the area where it is away from pedestrians less than 6 m
  5. Segway user do not have precedence over pedestrians .
  6. Segway user must ride on the sidewalk, on the right side (except for passing pedestrians ), while it may not be around the exits of houses and shops or from other buildings. This reduces the ride of Segways in a given direction on the sidewalk on the left side of the street ( to the direction ). The streets, where only one of the sidewalks wide enough, you can enable ride Segways only in the direction in which driving on the right side of the street is not going to drive around the exits of houses and shops or exits from other buildings.
  7. Segway user must pay full attention to controling the segway. While driving or while standing on the Segway, he can not make phone calls, smoke, eat , drink, taking pictures etc.
  8. Segway user may not be under the influence of alcohol – that is why segway companies can not offer tours with stops associated with the consumption of beer or other alcohol .
  9. The segway machine may be ride with only a single user. The second user on one segway is prohibited. This also applies for child in the back seat or to harness on chest.
  10. Segway of leading guide, must be equipped with a sounding bell for bicycles, located in the immediate reach of the rider's hand (or other devices generating noise like a bicycle bell ). The bell is used only in case of emergency. Pedestrians are always appealed with first group member, a guide, to avoid pedestrians , startled sound behind him. Equipping the bell on every segway in group is not recommended.
  11. Segway remains a mean of transport, although it belong the rules applicable to a pedestrian under the Act on Road Traffic. Guide of a group of tourists on borrowed Segway is also an instructor in, segway users under his leadership are moving along the sidewalks that are part of the ground traffic. Therfore the activities of companies engaged in renting segway in Prague to visitors, are practicly similiare to practice of driving schools. Therefore, the authority to operate such activities should be regulated like permission to operate a driving school. We recommend authorize a Segway carts only those entities which are organized into associations and subjected to common rules.
  12. Each Segway must have label that identifies the segway rental itself. If there is renting between segway rent companies, all carts must be marked with the same - current operator. Labelling serves not only to the current designation of the operator responsible for the ride on a Segway, but also as advertising. Metal tables are not permitted, as this could lead to an increase risk of injury.
  13. Guide Group is also obliged to prove their identity on demand to members of Czech Republic Police, or the City Police. To do this, he must stop and give the order to stop whole group. Police officer is entitled to use technical means to verify that the user is not a suspect under the influence of alcohol. In the positive case, the Segway detain and then transports the operator 's cost.
  14. Guide has right to refuse a rent of segway machine to client, which after instructions, is not able to manage control segway machine and the segway ride would be a risk to himself, or the surrounding area. The assessment of guide is subjective and the loan is not a legal right.
  15. User weight on Segway (including things - backpack, etc.) must be in the range of 25 to 117 kg.
  16. The areas with predominant recreational functions (eg in parks) is important to pay extra attention to pedestrian safety.
