That’s right. Don’t you dare tell any tourists about the architecture of our fair city. That mister rickshaw driver is for licensed tour guides only! Now keep peddling.
(From The Post and Courier)
It was a Charleston police sting unlike any other: An undercover cop dressed casually like a tourist taking a ride on a rickshaw.
The goal was to see if any of the downtown drivers were giving illegal speaking tours of the city’s numerous sight-seeing spots.
One of them did, and it cost him a fine of more than $1,000.
