Tourist Segway Crash [video]

Segway Tour

Segway tours have become a very popular way to tour around a city. It saves energy, gets you easily from point A to point B, and helps keep you from having to pop nasty blisters after a long day of walking. However, operating a Segway is like driving a car. To avoid a Segway crash you should always be aware of your surroundings, watch your speed, and don't operate a personal device at the same time.

However, it looks like YouTube user joshlake08 doesn't like to play by Segway operating rules. Speeding along a cruise port on a Segway with a camera in hand, he fails to notice what's ahead in the road and takes a turn for the worse. See if you can count how many times he flips over.

We are all too familiar with the fatalities caused by texting and driving. Do you think a campaign needs to be started to stop filming while on a Segway?
