Interesting phrase in the Post article: "Though passengers are not as vulnerable as the biker..."

Of course, there's no reason to believe that the front of a rickshaw is any more or less dangerous than the rear. What it is, however, is more visually exposed. I suspect that the exposure that a bicycle gives -- especially compared to the relative anonymity of an automobile -- is a subconscious reason a lot of people get a bad feeling about cycling in traffic. And perhaps, a subconscious reason why some motorists react so negatively at the sight of a cyclist.

Actually, a rickshaw is a cart pulled by a human on foot. One that is pulled by bicycle is called a trishaw.
