Steve David keeps his Chrysler PT Cruiser parked in driveway and switches to Segway, personal transport vehicle

I love to read stories about commuting green:

I know everybody can't cycle2work. So what? Commuting green is more important. Out of all green vehicles, i find "Segway" very fascinating. Read this story of Steve David of Baltimore.

Even before gasoline hit $4 a gallon, Steve David saw the writing on the wall and decided to reduce his reliance on costly fossil fuel for his daily commute from Hernwood Heights to his office in Baltimore.

A year ago he asked for a Segway personal transport vehicle for his birthday. His wife obliged.

Now he can be seen most days on the upright two-wheeler making his 25-minute commute through Randallstown to the Owings Mills Metro five miles away.

There he boards a train with the electric vehicle and disembarks at the State Center stop downtown. A half-mile later and he’s at his physical therapy practice on north Charles Street.

“If I leave the house at 8 a.m., I’m at the office by 9 a.m.,” David said.

Stopping to chat on Winands Road near the end of his commute on a balmy evening last week, David said that over the past year he’s used the Segway almost every day, even in the rain, although he avoids riding it in ice and snow.
