3-wheeled taxi

Green and yellow three-wheeled Delhi taxi

A reader commented that she didn’t know that 3-wheeled vehicles were still legal.

While she may be right about Australia, who have all sorts of rules about what constitutes a legal vehicle, in many other parts of the World, the 3-wheeler is most definitely alive and well.

The example above was photographed in the Delhi area during my 2006 trip to India. This is the common budget taxi in India. In fact, some enterprising soul tried to introduce them in Brighton on the south coast of England, but I think that the local 4-wheeled taxi firms mounted stern opposition and may have seen them off. I need to do some more research to verify that, though.

Maybe I should do the next Beckenham Concert Band gig, which is in Brighton, and go for a look-see! 😀
