Rickshaws in Dublin could be facing an all-out ban in Dublin city.
Dublin City Council, The National Transport Authority and the Department of Transport are currently in talks to do something about the cycling taxi service, which is presently unregulated.
Thus far, the council has not been permitted to impose bylaws upon the mode of transport. Gardai may only treat rickshaws as they would regular cyclists, according to TheJournal.ie.
Following recent revelations about drug-dealing taking place in rickshaws, the government has been spurred into action.
If rickshaw regulations do not become suitably strict, JPC chair Daithí De Róiste wants "to see them banned" because of the incidents of drug-dealing and injuries associated with the service.
