OK. Many questions really.

 

What is their definition of "segway and similar"?

It is named “personal transporter with autobalancing device or similar technical equipment”

 

Does it include skateboards, vehicles for disabled?

Nope, they do not have that autobalancing device.

 

Do the devices have to have motors?

Aparently no.

 

Must they have pole?

must not.

 

How many wheels, what size of wheel? Do you have to stand or does it include devices to sit on as well? Are there limits for the motor power (i.e. are toys for children allowed?).

Not defined, not defined, not defined.

 

Does this apply to using them on the road, on the sidewalk, everywhere?

Everywhere. It is a same category as a walker. Depens on the road signs.

 

Can you use them on private ground?

Sure you can.

 

Can a city introduce a new vehicle group, isn't this something the country has to do in national law?

They believed they can but it turned out that they can not. So we had to pass a new country legislation because of it.

the center of my beautiful city of Prague has been marked in a large scale recently by new road signs stating

that use of Segway PT and similar devices is prohibited there.



Wow, this leads to many questions. What is their definition of "segway and similar"? Does it include skateboards, vehicles for disabled? Do the devices have to have motors? Must they have pole? How many wheels, what size of wheel? Do you have to stand or does it include devices to sit on as well? Are there limits for the motor power (i.e. are toys for children allowed?).
