Acting Governor Scutari Signs Pedicab Alcoholic Beverage Consumption Legislation

The weekend of June 4 while Governor Murphy and Lieutenant Governor Oliver were out of the state on personal business, acting Governor Scutari signed P.L 2022, c.16 allowing for the consumption of alcoholic beverages in pedicabs under the following circumstances:

  • The pedicab has been authorized to operate by the ordinance of its municipality.
  • The operator of the pedicab is over the age of 21 and possesses a driver's license.
  • The vehicle must be equipped with seatbelts, brakes, reflectors, headlights, and grab rails.
  • The operator of the pedicab cannot drive on roadways exceeding speed limits of 30 miles per hour.

Under this law, a pedicab is defined as a three-wheeled vehicle that is operated by manual pedals for hire that accommodate no more than 15 people. Alcoholic beverages allowed on a pedicab will be limited to single-serving, sealed containers of beer, wine, hard cider, malt beverages, fermented beverages, and prepared mixed beverages. Each passenger will be required to be at least 21 years of age.
