These vehicles are basically bicycles. So don’t worry, they’re not allowed on highways.
It’s a cool idea and certainly a great way to travel for some folks. It beats having to pay to park a car. You could even pull right up to the front of a store, DPAC, restaurant, etc. and lock it up to the bike rack. Bonus! :-)

Good points, celebrities seem to like to have their pictures taken with them but would any of them use one for their daily travels?

I would only take this thing on a short trip, like a few miles away from home. No way I'd take this thing on a highway. I don't think it is designed for that, anyway.

1- Jerry Sinfeld just looked and didn't buy?
2- Pretty dangerous in Durham, can you imagine driving this thing in RTP? I know you can't take it on the highway but some streets would be just as bad as driving on a hwy!!
3-Can you park it where bikes are parked and how would you stop thieves from stealing it? I have to agree with previous poster, great idea for kids in the yard but not really for an adult to substitute for a car to get to work in one piece...sorry Rob Cotter, I won't be coming aboard.
PS What does Al Gore have to do with this specific bike contraption?

It might be fun to ride in your backyard or in a cow pasture but it wouldnt do well on the beltline. My grandson might like one but as for me--I wouldnt use one if the government was giving them away.

You won't find the rather rotund Al Gore riding one. He prefers SUVs and private jets to commute between his three mansions. What a hypocrit!
