Last June, Dublin City Council issued a public advisory notice warning of the safety hazards of using rickshaws.
“Dublin City council wishes to advise members of the public, for their own safety and the safety of others, that rickshaws operating in Dublin City are not regulated by DCC or otherwise,” the Council said in the notice posted on its website.
“Some rickshaw operators appear not to have public liability insurance,” it added.
