Supervisor Eric Mar sets hearing date for Segways in Golden Gate Park 

Supervisor Eric Mar has set the date for a hearing on whether there are safety issues surrounding Segways rolling along pedestrian-only pathways in Golden Gate Park.

A couple weeks ago, Electric Tour Co. started guiding tours with the upright, two-wheel scooters through some of the most popular hot spots.

However, since the Recreation and Park Commission approved a map that gave them more exclusive rights than bicycles or anything other than pedestrians, Mar wanted to hear more about their potential impacts.

The hearing is scheduled for March 14, but the time is still pending.
