Westerminster licence rickshaws

Dear Sir, I am concerned at recent news reports that you “Westminster City Council” wish to licence “rickshaws” I am concerned and would ask you to clarify a number of points which I am raising with you ;

(1) Rickshaws offer no impact protection from side, rear or front impact unlike other modes of transport.

(2) Where will wheelchairs be placed and assistance dogs ?

(3) Will smoking be permitted on rickshaws ?

(4) Where will rickshaws park ? I ask this because we seem to be losing taxi ranks within the West End of London.

(5) What legal status do you seek to be given to “rickshaws” ?

(6) What role is transport for London playing in this scheme ?

I look forward to your response shortly.

Your Sincerely,
