Trishaws

When is a trishaw a taxi?

Is a tricycle rickshaw - a trishaw - a stagecoach? It is the stuff of Cambridge law finals, and so it was fitting that the Courts have recently been troubled by a bizarre dispute about a plan for environmentally friendly transport for tourists in that City's choked streets.

For most people, rickshaws are of Asia, and stagecoaches belong on the glossier Christmas cards. They are not the stuff of the English courts of the Nineties.
