I have noticed on my drives around the Mall during the day, especially evening rush hour, that there seem to be more of these bike rickshaw/carriages--a single rider (never with a helmet on) pulling two people carriage style. They are often on major roads--Independence Ave, for instance--going barely at the rate of a brisk walk despite significant traffic. With all the huge tour busese, SUVs, and other commuters, simply spotting these things is difficult. It's a serious disaster waiting to happen. I can't belive[sic] the city actually allows this to happen, it's so obviously dangerous.
I agree. Tour buses and SUV's should not be allowed on busy streets during rush hour. (That was their point, right?)
