Written answers (Question to Transport)

Rickshaws do not come within the small public service vehicle (SPSV) regulatory regime. The SPSV regulatory regime applies to mechanically propelled vehicles only.  The use of rickshaws on public roads must comply with general road traffic legislation and any bye-laws made by local authorities.
