    NYC: PEDICABS ROLL TO VICTORY


    January 18, 2008 --



    Pedicab companies were riding high yesterday after a judge quashed a rule that made it more competitive for the ubiquitous rickshaw operators to obtain licenses.

    "This decision does nothing less than save our industry," said New York City Pedicab Owners' Association President Peter Meitzler.
    Last year, the City Council overrode Mayor Bloomberg's veto to cap the number of licenses at 325.


    The Department of Consumer Affairs widened the pool of who was given preference for pedicab licenses, which pedicab advocate Chad Marlow said created a "stampede" for permits.


    Instead, license preferences will go only to the owners of the pedicabs, according to the decision handed down by State Supreme Court Judge Edward Lehner.


    The city was not pleased.
    "The Department of Consumer Affairs will appeal the decision that struck down its rule that treated all pedicab-industry participants in an evenhanded manner," city attorney Gabriel Taussig said.
    The 325 cap will remain in place before it reaches its built-in "sunset" date in two years, Marlow said.
