The grace period is apparently over for Segway tours violating Boston’s ordinance passed by the City Council and signed by the Mayor last June. A neighbor cites a ticket being given out and sends in these photos in what appears to be transportation department officer (white car & badge around neck) stopping a Boston Gliders tour on Atlantic Avenue.
It is difficult to tell the exact violation, but that spot where the tour is stopped is between two sidewalks, the Harborwalk and Christopher Columbus Park. These are all areas where the new city ordinance disallows Segway tours.
Residents report the Segway tours have been using the streets more in recent weeks, although still often seen on sidewalks and in parks as well.
