LOOK! – New Anti-“Dooring” Campaign Announced

On this gorgeous fall morning, NYC Commissioners Sadik-Khan from DOT and Yassky from TLC, along with Deputy Mayor Wolfson, announced a new “anti-dooring” public awareness campaign on the pedestrian plaza just north of Union Square Park.  The campaign features decals on the windows of taxi cabs reminding people to watch out for cyclists when exiting.  This effort is an extension of their LOOK! campaign.  With so many pedestrians in Union Square Park (as well as cabs), it is important that people, of all modes of transportation, pay attention to reduce accidents. LOOK! decals can be found around the park etched in the pavement.   According to DOT, 26,000 orange-and-white window stickers will be provided to the city’s Taxi fleet and a new public service video will run on TaxiTV.
