By law, pedicab drivers must use a timer to determine the price per minute per ride.
- Comply with the current version of Handbook 44 and Special Publication 960-12 of the National Institute of Standards and Technology
- Be inspected and sealed by the Department of Consumer Affairs (DCA).
You cannot use a cell phone as a timer.
You can schedule the inspection of a timer that is not sealed yet with the DCA. DCA will confirm the day and time of your inspection and will place a current official seal on timers that pass inspection.
$10 per timer inspection.
Get information for pedicab businesses and drivers.
