Itâ€™s great to read a favorable write-up on the pedicab regulations (See Editorâ€™s Soapbox: Proposed Pedicab Protocol Not So Appalling). I also agree that the limited number within Manhattan may not be needed. I think the cost of the regulations will reduce the number in order to maintain profits. If the business is succeeding, then it should be allowed to grow.
Now we can only hope the licensing and insurance will limit the pedicab pot smoking breaks I regularly see along CPW.

Note: Since the last issue was published, Mayor Bloomberg decided not to sign the pedicab bill, at least for now.
