How the new NYC taxi is bike-friendly
New York City’s new taxis have sliding doors, so that there’s no danger that a tourist from the flyover zone will thoughtlessly door a passing cyclist when he or she hops out.
Of course, this won’t stop you from getting clocked by NYC’s finest, so maybe the next vehicles to get an overhaul should be the city’s squad cars.
