The solution to the partition injury problem is to get the partitions out of the cabs.

"Injuries involved in the partitions in taxis are easily avoidable by simply buckling up. I don't wish it upon anybody, but when your taxi driver must come to a short stop, the partition of a Nissan MV 200 is going to hurt just as much if you're not wearing your seat belt."

They are not easily avoided by front seat occupants, even with a seat belt buckled. The solution to the partition injury problem is to get the illegal partition hazards out of the cabs. There are two ways to do that. Remove the partitions completely, or use only certified federally compliant partitions. Until the NYC TLC stipulates federal compliance in the partition designs that they require, inspect and approve... losses can be attributable to the NYC TLC.
