Crozet, VA Beights Corporation and CB Richard Ellis-Charlottesville are pleased to announce yet another business located in the new Old Trail Village Center in Crozet, Virginia. Seg-Ville, Inc., a venture of Albemarle County residents Don and Victoria Rich, will open in early January 2009 in the Old Trail Village Center. These unique, two-wheeled transportation units are powered by electric batteries. A Segway produces zero emissions and, when compared to the costs of automobile fuel versus that of electricity used to charge the battery, is eleven times more efficient than the average American car.

One negative that comes to mind is that if the Segways become popular in Old Trail, the Segways may serve to isolate Old Trail residents from the rest of Crozet.
For some reason, one of the first things I thought of was the communication methods used by humans in the movie WALL-E.
