Peddlin' Pirates Not Peddling

The Peddlin' Pirates rickshaw company has been shuttling people around Greenville for about four months now - but its owners say the Greenville Police department shut it down Wednesday for not having a taxi license.

Peddlin' Pirates owners say they don't mind getting a taxi license, but say many parts of the application don't apply to them because rickshaws are not motor vehicles.

Greenville's city clerk says she's going to talk with the city attorney to see whether the taxi license is applicable to the company, or if city code might need to be re-written to include rickshaw ordinances.

Peddlin' Pirates owners say either option is fine with them, as long as their business can open up again soon.

Greenville's city clerk says she's not sure how long it will be until the Peddlin' Pirates will be able to operate again, but says she doesn't think they'll be open in time for ECU's game against Memphis this weekend.
