UPDATE: Danley actually faces 21 violations of the city Segway restrictions - and a hearing that could mean 70 to 90 more, the Suffolk County District Attorney's office reports. Boston Municipal Court Judge Raymond Dougan continued his arraignment until Feb. 24 - the day after a hearing on a motion by Danley's attorney to dismiss all the charges.
Allen Danley, owner of the Boston Gliders Segway tour company, is scheduled for arraignment today on six charges of violating the city ordinance against Segway operations in city parks and on city sidewalks, the Suffolk County District Attorney's office reports.
A Boston Municipal Court clerk magistrate found six violations of the limitations on "electric personal assistive mobility devices," such as Segways, the DA's office says. Danley faces fines of up to $500 per offense.
The city council voted in June to restrict Segways to in-road routes designated by police and the city Transportation Department. Enforcement, in the form of tickets handed out to tour leaders, began in August and continued through the fall.
