A pedicab driver was arrested and charged with assault on Friday after punching a horse carriage driver. After getting stuck behind a slow carriage on 5th Avenue and 60th street, he attempted to go around, only to have his bike clipped by the carriage. Clearly realizing that the horse was going slow due to fatigue and abuse, pedicab driver Yacouba Coulibaly said he "grabbed the reins and said, 'Stop! Please stop, or I'm calling the cops.'" He and carriage driver Dermot Kelley both admit to throwing punches, but Kelley argued, "The pedicabs have to adhere to the rules same as everyone else." That means no salmoning!
The first 80 new curbside parking spaces reserved for carshare programs will be installed in Brooklyn, Queens and the Bronx starting Tuesday.
