Rickshaws in Vegas

Faced with extinction, pedicab drivers in Las Vegas show how they fill a need in the city.

"[S]cores of Las Vegas pedicab drivers who zip up and down the strip, making sure visitors don't have to waste their time in traffic congestion....state and local law enforcement officials declared the pedicab swarm illegal and a potential danger to tourists. They intend to force the vehicles into extinction....Las Vegas pedicab entrepreneurs say they provide an important service to tired tourists and are being unfairly targeted....Pedicabs aren't unique to Las Vegas. Other cities, such as Denver, San Francisco and Santa Barbara, California, have embraced the modern-day rickshaws."
