The Segway, a two wheeled device, has been banned from the streets of the UK by a recent magistrates ruling.
The device, famously used by George Bush, has two wheels and works by the rider leaning backwards and forward to speed up or slow down.
The designer of the Segway died recently after riding one off a cliff in his companies complex.
The case came about after Philip Coates from Barnsley was taken to court for riding one on the paths around his home town.
The test case concluded with Coates being fined £75 and asked to pay £265 in costs. The case revolved around whether the Segway was deemed to be a mechanically propelled vehicle intended for or adapted for use on the roads.
Coates is said to be considering challenging the verdict. Security firms in shopping centres up and down the country use the devices to move around the shops quickly and gives them a slightly elevated view.
