Tory MP for Ilford North, Lee Scott has tabled a motion that "calls on the Government urgently to ensure that all pedicabs are removed from the streets before the UK experiences a tragic incident like the one in Seattle."
On this sort of logic shouldn't he be calling for cars to be banned too? I quite like getting in a pedicab when I need to get to the train station in London. It's relaxing and fun, and I take the risk, just like if I get in a taxi, that their maybe an accident.
Whatever happened to personal responsibility from Tories? What's more, given Lee Scott is enthusiastic for laws to combat climate change shouldn't he be in favour of "carbon-free" transport solutions?
