The markings on the 70,000 vehicles TLC licenses are increasingly reflecting New York City’s focus on safety.
TLC has been distributing free “LOOK for Cyclists” stickers at its Woodside Safety and Emissions Facility. These stickers are placed inside the passenger door to remind passengers to be cautious when exiting the vehicle.
TLC has also been distributing free “Your Choices Matter” bumper stickers to TLC licensees to support the NYC Department of Transportation’s campaign to encourage all drivers to make safe choices behind the wheel.
Driver and pedestrian collisions are particulary prevalent when drivers are making left turns. All TLC–licensed vehicles will now have driver-facing “Turning? People are Crossing?” stickers to serve as a constant reminder to exercise particular caution when making turns.
