Footdown

Mercedes drop-tops get more vroom Mercedes-Benz Hong Kong has followed up the recent launch of its facelift SL and SLK convertible ranges with high-performance versions of both: the SL63 AMG and SLK55 AMG.

'Both models take the strengths of the Roadster to the limit and deliver a more impressive driving experience than ever before,' Mercedes-Benz Hong Kong says.

Jackie Chan gets about ... on two wheels

Besides lending his name to endorsing the Foreman grill, Jackie Chan, as usual, is busy plugging a variety of things. Tomorrow the tireless promoter is showing up to open the Global Sources' China Sourcing Fair for electronics and components.

Viva l'evolution

Events mutate into news at warp speed, which makes it hard to be cutting edge or even vaguely with-it. As a result, I subject every instalment of this column to a novelty scan based on whether the nitty-gritty is newsy enough.

Talk back

Q How can animal welfare be improved?

On March 18, an 18-month-old dog with its legs chopped off was found abandoned in a garbage dump. Such inhuman and brutal behaviour is infuriating.

Talk back

Q How can animal welfare be improved?

Seeing your report yesterday about the dog with his legs chopped off and left on a rubbish dump, one must conclude that only a radically sick mind is capable of such extreme cruelty.

In many developed countries this would be a crime punishable by years in prison, with the offender having to undergo psychiatric treatment.

Segway belongs on the road, not the pavement

I refer to your Backspace article in the Technology section on May 20 about the Segway scooter. I am no fan of the Hong Kong Transport Department except in the matter of their classifying the Segway as a road vehicle.

You are wrong to say the Segway is banned. You can apply for a licence to use it on the road as with any other motor vehicle.

Don't lump bicycles with the Segway

I refer to the article about Segway scooters in the South China Morning Post's technology pages ('Segway riders risk driving ban', January 28). Congratulations to the Transport Department for its stance on this vehicle.

As I understand it, anyone can use a Segway on the road, subject to normal motorcycle licensing regulations and adherence to road traffic laws.

Segway riders risk driving ban

Anyone who rides the hi-tech celebrity scooter Segway on Hong Kong pavements, parks or roads risks being fined up to HK$8,000 and being banned from driving for 12 months.

The effective ban on the device was revealed to Technology Post in an e-mail response from a Transport Department spokesman.

Reconsider pollution-busting Segway

I read Carolyn Ong's recent story about the Segway transport device being banned from Hong Kong last year. As an irate pollution-breathing member of Hong Kong society, I find it ridiculous that the government has dismissed without so much as an explanation the possibility of using such a device.

HK likely to reject hi-tech US scooter

Transport officials have dashed hopes for a Hong Kong launch of the Segway, a hi-tech scooter invented in the United States and billed as a solution for pollution-free commuting in cities.

The electric-powered vehicle went on sale for the first time exclusively at online retail store Amazon.com last Monday. However, it is only available to US customers.
