The side by side seating has many advantages. Not only does it make it much easier to interact with the other rider it's much easier to tend to the needs of children or disabled riders. And remember, they can ride within the level of ability due to the independent power trains.

Either rider can stop the Ricksycle with a hand brake on the steering stick. The disk brakes on the rear wheels have plenty of stopping power. Also the parking brake can be engaged easily with a simple push button.

To steer the Ricksycle one simply pushes the steering stick forward to turn left and pulls back to turn right. One of the riders is the "captain" and does the steering but it can be done from either side.
