Rickshaw

Almost 80% of motorists have concerns about the dangers posed by rickshaws in Irish cities, yet most do not want them banned, research has found.

The survey, by AA Car Insurance, was completed by almost 5,000 people, and a majority of respondents said they believed the use of rickshaws in Ireland needs to be further regulated.

“The results are quite clear. There is a real fear for personal safety here, not just for the rickshaw driver and passengers, but also for the other road users who are put at risk by unregulated practices,” Conor Faughnan, AA Director of Consumer Affairs said.
