Council to vote on beach "Pedicabs" Thursday | News
Clearwater Beach, Fla. -- Mechanical and pedal-powered people-movers will soon fall under city regulation.
The city council is poised to enact a new ordinance Thursday covering "pedicabs," three-wheeled bikes that offer free rides for visitors for tips, as well as surreys, Segways, motor scooters and electric powered golf carts for free rides for tips or for hire.
The conveyances have been operating on the beach unregulated by the city for more than a year.
One change the council made at Monday's work session would make it illegal to operate the "pedicabs" in the roundabout, for safety reasons They would remain legal on other beach streets and sidewalks.
Citizens who wish to comment on the new ordnance may do at the council meeting beginning 6 p.m. Wednesday at City Hall.
