This week I've been taking advantage of the fact that my Segway is technically street legal. At one point on the way to work, there's no sidewalk that I can use right now; they're all torn up. So, at some point, I just peel off and get on the road, and drive there for a couple blocks. It's unfortunate, as I can't go as fast as the other traffic, especially uphill, but it's a heavy construction area so everyone's going slowly anyway, and I don't have much of a choice. Any other way to the office that I can think of could increase my total commute by more than half due to the lack of through streets, so until they clean up one of the sidewalks, people are just going to have to deal.
Admittedly, it's kind of fun to ride my Segway on the streets.
