Police and TfL crack down on motorised pedicabs
10th September 2014

The Metropolitan Police and Transport for London have seized pedicabs in central London which were found to have adapted motors to make them go faster. 

Nine pedicabs were seized by officers after being classified as motor vehicles due to their weight. The drivers of the seized vehicles were found to have no driving licenses, no tax and no insurance. 

It is thought motorised pedicabs are becoming increasingly common in cities such as London and New York - over 50 vehicles were inspected by the police during the operation.
