OUR REPORTAGE:

Today we were in Old Town Square to check if police were applying the Segway ban.

√ We spent there 1 hour

√ City Police was present with a representative vehicle and four officers.

√ In one case, police fined two Segway drivers.

√ Apparently the situation is normal, Segways stationed in the old town square past in front the police without any problems

In our opinion, more controls should be done to really enforce this law.
