The Vision Zero Action Plan is only a beginning for Vision Zero in New York. It defines the initial steps that the City Police (NYPD) and Transportation Departments (DOT), Taxi & Limousine Commission (TLC), the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH) and other agencies will take. These initiatives will be continually analyzed for their effectiveness. Other innovations will be sought and added.
Proposed TLC initiatives include:
• Create TLC safety enforcement squad, equipped with speed radar equipment, to enforce speed and safety regulations
• Pilot program to place black box data recorders in TLC-licensed vehicles
• Implement more comprehensive, taxi-specific, driving curriculum for initial licensees
• Pursue requirement of additional behind-the-wheel driving instruction for drivers involved in frequent crashes, and continued driver safety education
• Pilot technology that alerts passengers and drivers that they are traveling over the speed limit
• Explore in-car technology that limits vehicle speed, warns drivers of impending collisions or that reduces the fare when the driver speeds
• Introduce street safety PSAs on Taxi TV
• Use driver information monitors to send safety reminders to taxi drivers
• Add safety flyers and messaging in TLC mailings to drivers
• Include left turn reminder stickers in TLC-licensed vehicles
• Create publicly accessible Honor Roll of safe TLC drivers
• Enhance enforcement against drivers offering for-hire service without TLC licenses
• Explore vehicle design requirements to improve safety
DoITT recently updated and automated a number of datasets, including the Department of Health and Mental Health’s flu vaccine locations and farmers market locations, the Department of Sanitation’s monthly tonnages and graffiti removal, and the Taxi and Limousine Commission’s lost property and active drivers, among others. The real time information in these datasets begins to tell the story of our city – from over 2,000 medical providers participating in NYC REACH, to over 51,000 active medallion taxi drivers, and the 140 farmers markets located across the city.

Pretty funny/cool surprise last night. I was walking near my house around midnight, without my camera and wearing nondescript winter clothes. A cab came flying past me, then immediately slowed down and pulled over. I assumed it was dropping somebody off. When I caught up to the cab, the driver leaned out the window. “There you are,” he said. “I’ve been hauling this thing around for weeks.”
Did you catch this #borotaxi on HONY last week?
Celebrating the groundbreaking, innovative tenure of TLC Commissioner and Chair David Yassky! Have a slice of progress!
