By law, pedicab drivers must use a timer to determine the price per minute per ride.
Timers must comply with the current version of Handbook 44 and Special Publication 960-12 of the National Institute of Standards and Technology and be inspected and sealed by the Department of Consumer Affairs (DCA).
You can schedule inspection of a timer that is not sealed yet by phone or by email: RequestInspection@dca.nyc.gov. DCA will confirm the day and time of your inspection. The fee is $10 per timer inspection. DCA will place a current official seal on timers that pass inspection.
