ARLINGTON (1080 KRLD) - City leaders in Arlington will decide the fate of the Entertainment District's Pedicab program tonight. 

The Arlington city council is expected to end the long running Pedicab service in the city's entertainment district.

Officials say the bicycle chauffeur program is popular, but it's been trouble for years.

They say the Pedicabs have repeatedly caused safety issuess like weaving in and out of traffic, blocking emergency lanes and overloading with passengers.

Arlington’s Assistant Director Keith Brooks says within three years, officials received 25 complaint e-mails, almost all from Pedicab companies, about violations of competing companies.
