CONSTITUENTS: Tourists on Segways Coming Soon

Watch out Washington. Segway people movers are coming to a sidewalk near you. If you've been in Dupont, you've probably seen that random guy cruising the neighborhood on one. But more are coming. In fact, tourists en mass will be deployed on the futuristic contraptions soon, if everything goes according to plan for one tour company.

City Segway Tours is getting ready to host its first tours of the city and is searching for tour guides.

The tour company already has operations in Paris and Nice, and starts operations in New Orleans and Chicago this coming week.

USA Today wrote an article back in April about seeing Paris' tourist attractions while being one at the same time.

From USA Today:
"Touring around on Segways added a whole new dimension to the city and to our perspective as tourists," said Mary Ann Schaefer, 55, who lives in suburban Cleveland. "Now we could gaze as we rolled instead of as we strolled."
