FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Wednesday, July 29, 2009

Elizabeth Miller, (212) 487-4283


STATEMENT OF DEPARTMENT OF CONSUMER AFFAIRS COMMISSIONER JONATHAN MINTZ ON THE CITY COUNCIL’S AMENDMENT TO LOCAL LAW 19


“Today the City Council voted in favor of an amendment to the City’s pedicab law that, at long last will allow this Department to hold this industry accountable for safe and fair operations for New Yorkers and tourists alike. DCA now will be able to begin the speedy but careful process of inspecting each and every pedicab that would operate on the City’s streets, as well as make sure that drivers and companies are properly insured and licensed.”
