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.

The pedicab plans will be considered by the city council’s licensing committee on Monday, reports The Scotsman.

Stan Barker, a courier from London, wants to operate a fleet of up to 20 rickshaws under the name "Cockneys" and Raymond Apedaile, a Fraserburgh engineer, hopes to run a fleet of five called "Pedal Pumpers".
