Segway Recall

By  | 

The government says if you own a Segway, you should stop riding it immediately.

The company's calling back more than 23,000 of its personal transporters because of a software glitch that could throw the wheels into reverse, causing riders to fall off.

The consumer product safety commission says people should stop using the self-balancing scooters immediately.

It says Segway has received six reports of people suffering head and wrist injuries.

The company is offering a free software upgrade to fix the problem.

This is the second time the scooters have been recalled since they first went on sale in 2002.
