Electric on-demand pedicabs will soon be seen on London’s crowded roads
and cycle routes.

The new fleet of power-assisted bikes will be on the roads this month,
with six starting operation on the South Bank from today.

Passengers can summon one of Veluba’s vehicles using an Uber-style app,
and will pay a £3 booking fee plus £1.25 per mile. The money is then
debited directly from the passenger’s connected account.

Each passenger pod has seatbelts and USB port, plus three CCTV cameras.

Doesn't restricting them to 15.5mph violate a driver's RIGHT to travel 10%+2mph+10%+2mph+5mph(for being an above average driver)+5mph(for knowing the road) above the LEGAL speed LIMIT?
