Police chief says rickshaws can't cope with wind

A Scottish police chief and Aberdeen city council's roads officials have objected to plans for two separate bicycle-rickshaw taxi services. Chief Inspector Mark McLaren believes the pedicabs will be a hazard because of sidewinds; the roads wonks are worried the rickshaws will lead to increased congestion in Aberdeen city centre.
