A unicycle... on the streets of Fall River... and he hasn't been swallowed by a pothole yet?

Doubtful.

He recommends protected gear, smart man.  For 40mph on a unicycle, I think that looks something like these:

"It literally takes me four minutes to get to work, versus about eight minutes in a vehicle," he said.

In heavy traffic, it takes me 8 minutes just to get to the freeway on ramp a block away

I see people in Boston driving those things all the time. One guy even fitted out a little trailer for his, just big enough to hold his knapsack or a bag of groceries.

I rather use those bubble balls to get around than an electric unicycle. It's like having your own padded room to knock people out of the way with.

Sounds like you could probably just walk there dude.

People like that don't die. They live to fail again and again and again.

Try doing grocery shopping with that. Or just try taking something along with you using that. Imagine a family with kids, all speeding around and the children are constantly trying to get themselves killed by trucks and the world.

Screw allowing these things anywhere near sidewalks or roads.  That sounds like a dangerous and terrible idea.  However a closed track racing circuit with the things sound like a dangerous and Fantastic idea.

He would have to physically move his own feet, though. Possibly hundreds of times. Is that really a price you expect him to pay?

$2,000.00... how long would it take you to save that much in gas?
Not to mention, rainy, cold, snowy days?

When I first saw the Segway (remember those?) I thought of BC. Then they came out with those one-wheeled electric skateboards, and I thought, you're getting warmer! Now this. I wonder if that guy has ever seen the comic.

Exactly... in a northern state, you'd have to wear about 40lbs of cold-weather clothing, even in the summer. On top of that, you'd need leathers head to toe to protect skin and clothes. And expect to fall... it's gonna happen, just like a motorcycle. Fortunately, it'll only do about 40mph and will be stuck city streets and blue/gray highways, where cage runners won't see you, most times. Be safe out thiere and share the road y'all.

Just because something fun, does not mean that you forget the danger involved. That idiot took what he was doing for granted and I hope he made a large price. Like on a motorcycle, once you forget that you are only protected by paying attention, you die.

I was down in the Mission some years back and was passed on the side walk by a lady riding her unicycle with a regular bike on her shoulder. A block later I passed her, tangled up on the side walk with her odd number of wheels.

It was like a moment from Slacker.

FFS - if it's only 4 minutes on the wheel, how long would it take you to walk, you lazy bastard?

Started looking at full face helmets after reading this.    There's nothing like a kid or dog darting out from between  cars to change the game where a swerve at 40 mph is going to do some damage, especially you're ducking the other unicycle rider coming the other way airborne.
