Dublin City Council's issued an official safety warning about rickshaws.
There have been reports of poor behaviour by rickshaw drivers, including traveling the wrong way down one way streets.
Despite this many don't have insurance and can't be forced to take out cover due to a legal loophole, which transport bosses are hoping to close.
The vehicles aren't covered by legislation because most of them are fitted with motors.
The government is considering regulating rickshaws under the Taxi Regulation Act.
