LAPD gets 2 upright cart-scooters

March 25, 2009 12:00:00 AM PDT
The LAPD has a new tool to help fight crime in the San Fernando Valley. The Westfield Topanga Mall donated two personal mobility vehicles. The electric-powered vehicles are similar to Segways, but they have three wheels. Officers can stand on the scooter like vehicles and cover a lot of ground quickly. They have a top speed of 12 miles per hour.

Officials say they're ideal because they're easy to maneuver through big crowds, and they're environmentally friendly.

Officers plan to use them at the mall, in parking lots and during parades.
