The LOOK curbside markings are currently installed in 110 intersections citywide.
The LOOK decal will appear on taxi windows.

"LOOK" also seeks to encourage safe behavior for taxi passengers, with decals and a Taxi TV video designed to combat "dooring"—crashes caused when a car door is opened into the path of a bike rider. Dooring is a serious hazard, resulting in the death of seven bicyclists since 2007. The Taxi TV video and decals will be a part of the 200 million annual yellow-taxi rides citywide.
