Reilly proposes yet another crackdown on Chicago pedicabs
Ald. Brendan Reilly wants pedicabs banned from the River North entertainment district from 6 p.m. to 9 a.m. and their amplified sound silenced at all times, saying some pedicab drivers are serving as DJs for "illegal curbside parties."
They are the worst on Grant Park lakefront trail. There is literally a bike path next to the footpath but they choose to barrel through walkers to be close to water.
Pedicabs honestly never bother me in River North / Viagra Triangle. Let ‘em have some fun. Asshole-piloted supercars revving and winding out after midnight bother me regularly, as do squadrons of motorcycles, but Reilly is pretty quiet on that score.
Why not just issue citations for exceeding a specific dB level? Article doesn’t even say how many incidents have caused issues for EMS, the argument is grasping to make its case.
