MP for the Two Cities made the case in the House of Commons Chamber for the need for pedicab regulation.
Nickie spoke passionately around the need for regulation, and how she has received over 4000 interactions on this one issue. Nickie also spoke in the Chamber around how a rogue pedicab driver had charged a tourist couple £380 for a 0.8 mile journey from Leicester Square to Stratton St. The Uber equivalent cost would have been £7.
Nickie is pleased to have support from the London Pedicab Operators Association, and has been clear that she does not want to ban pedicabs. There are many good pedicab drivers, who have undergone safety checks and ensure their vehicle is safe.
Nickie is campaigning to ensure all pedicab drivers undergo safety checks, similar to those seen with black cabs and private hire vehicles.
