A simple way to reduce these types of deaths
and injuries is to warn people to look out for
cyclists before opening car doors-The
NYC Taxi and Limousine Commission (TLC) has
a fleet of 35,000 vehicles that are constantly
on the streets picking up and dropping off people,
these create the greatest danger to urban cyclists.
Citystreets petitioned the TLC in the interest
of public safety to place these stickers on
all vehicles under their jurisdiction. Citystreest
was refused and then decided to take action
into their own hands by designing and printing
stickers and then distributing them to people
who put them on taxi door windows. So far Citystreets
has distributed many thousands of stickers to
people who ride in cabs and are participating
in this form of activism in the interest of
If you regularly ride in cabs and want to help
make NYC safer then pick up some stickers and
join in a little "back seat" activism.
Please send us a #10 self addressed stamped
envelope with 3 $0.37 stamps and we'll mail
you a pack of 20 stickers. The stickers are
free but if you do have a job, a trust fund,
or some Lotto winings, please hit the 'spare
some change' button at the top of the page.
If you are making a donation of at least $10.00,
write your address and "Send me some taxi
stickers, yo!" in your message, and forget
about sending the SASE.
