New York Personal Injury Lawyer Supports New Rules for Pedicabs


New York personal injury lawyer David Percman commends the New York City Council for approving legislation that would cap the number of pedicabs operating in the city at the current number of 850.

“With more regulation for pedicabs, New York City will be safer for tourists and native New Yorkers,” personal injury lawyer Percman said.

The legislation also makes it easier for the city to suspend licenses after drivers receive multiple violations. These violations include broken seat belts, tail lights, brakes and other factors that can contribute to personal injury accidents. If a pedicab driver operates the vehicle twice in one year without a valid driver's license or with a suspended license, the Department of Consumer Affairs would have the power to revoke the driver's license.

The council also approved legislation to force the human-powered taxis to adhere to the same city parking regulation as cars. Pedicabs would no longer be able to park in no standing or no parking zones, or near a fire hydrant or in a crosswalk

Percman, a New York personal injury lawyer for over 30 years, urges Mayor Bloomberg to sign the bill.
