As if pedicab operators didn’t have it rough enough, always having to compete with aggressive cab drivers for patrons, a judge ruled Monday that pedicabs will no longer be allowed to cross city bridges on bike paths, whether or not they have passengers onboard. As a result, operators may now have to load their pedicabs onto trucks whenever they need to move between boroughs, which sounds like a nuisance and also totally humiliating. [Metropolis/WSJ]
