Pedicab insurance rates
The video linked below shows the consequence of letting customers influence your decision making while operating a pedicab. In Austin during night time hours, our customers are often drunk. It is up to the pedicab operator to make the decisions, not the customer. An experienced good pedicab operator will know the difference pleasing their customers with a little bit of graceful fun, and damaging their pedicab and ruining their night or entire week or longer if you have to replace parts like rear wheels and disc brakes.

Notice how little regard the customers have for the plight of this pedicab driver. They really don’t care at all about him or his equipment. They are just showing off for the camera, and loving that they were “powerful” enough to damage the cab and upset him. The bystanders in the video say to the pedicab driver after he asks for help “Your on your own dude.” “Help me? - Goodbye.”
- True the non-tacoed rear wheel if possible - 1 hour @ $25.00 / hr., $125.00 - $145.00 for replacement if not possible.
- Remove of passenger carriage, rear axle, old brake disc. Then reinstall new disc, axle and passenger carriage. Align rear brake. 4 to 5 hours @ $25.00 / hr. $100 to $125.00
- Touch up paint on bottom side of frame to prevent rust. - 1 to 2 hours @ $25.00 / hr.
All said and done, this operator not only cost himself the earnings from the rest of his night ($50.00 to $200.00), but a repair bill between approximately $294.00 to $484.00.
He also probably cost himself a job. If he were on one of my pedicabs, I would have fired him.
It is also important to remember that a 60 year old school teacher was thrown from a pedicab and died while riding in a pedicab being operated in a similar manner. As a result of this, every pedicab company in the country is paying higher insurance rates and more than half of the pedicab drivers in San Diego lost their jobs after the city re-regulated the industry capping the number of cabs at 250.
