"To minimize injury to taxi passengers and drivers resulting from partitions when a vehicle is
involved in an accident, the rules require that the vehicles described below be crash tested by
auto manufacturers with the TLC authorized partition installed. A limited exception is made for

one hybrid electric and one accessible vehicle, respectively, are crash tested with a TLC
authorized partition. Requiring crash testing with TLC authorized partitions ensures that all auto
manufacturers looking to participate in the New York City taxi market are held to the same high
safety standards."
