Dear Mr. Crowell:


I am writing in response to your recent correspondence regarding taxicab partitions.

Partitions have been required in taxicabs since 1994. TI-C rules require that a partition be made of lexan, margard or other polycarbonate material not less than 0.375 inches thick extending upward from the back of the front seat to the ceiling of the vehicle. The protective plate shall be 0.085 inch thick plate of ballistic steel or its equivalent, installed inside the back rest of the front seat.

We believe these standards to be sufficient and in compliance with all required standards.

Sincerely  Yours,

Diane McGrath-McKechnie
Commissioner/Chairperson
