(Hiring autorickshaw drivers is tough. They see you're the white guy, and then you open your mouth and they know you're an American, so the rate they quote you is probably 5-10x the going rate for locals. 200 INR for a 5 minute ride is peanuts to me, so I would happily pay it, but my Indian friends would hate me for it if they knew; I'm considered a market spoiler, who's either driving up prices or making it so that whites get more attention from drivers.)

Those look like they'd be fun to drive. But they're probably not street legal here, are they.

Maybe it's just a matter of time. We've got rickshaws, and we've got e-bikes. Put the two together.

So ... treat it like a moped? That would make sense ... and of course the laws on moped use vary wildly from state to state.

Here in NY they're called "limited use motorcycles" and the laws are pretty strict.
