5. NYPD T3 Scooters

Though the Segway will always have a special place in our hearts, police officers patrolling indoor areas — such as the subway, and sites with high levels of pedestrian traffic like Citi Field and Yankee Stadium — were equipped with T3 Scooters in 2010. These three-wheeled, electric people-movers give officers just enough height to allow them to see above crowds without making them imposing and unapproachable. The scooters can travel as fast as 20 miles per hour, are 100% emission free, and can hold a charge for days since they have two batteries.

Additionally, T3 Scooters allow officers to navigate pedestrian areas much faster than they could on foot while simultaneously eliminating unnecessary fatigue they may experience from running and walking.
