Stick Tourists In These, They’ll Forget All About the Horses

With the possibility of a ban on carriage horses gaining momentum, will the city start seriously considering alternatives like antique-style electric cars? Since putting drivers out of work or suddenly cutting off the flow of revenue the cruelish industry mainly supported by tourists generates is out of the question, these vehicles could be a way to appease both sides (except for the carriage owners whose stables are sitting on valuable property and are therefore motivated to maintain the status quo). But hopefully this can all be sorted out and the only breakdowns in the future are mechanical ones, cause this kind is just not pretty.
