Police Segway

I’ve taken snaps of policemen on motorcycles and policemen on horses.

Here is a snap of a policeman driving across the Hoover Damn on a Segway:

It really makes you stop and think why the police here would find it necessary to ride segways?  The weather is spectacular, the damn is small enough to walk across, and the people (mostly tourists from Las Vegas) are all very friendly.

Are the police trying to send a message?
