“We’re looking at various proposals to enhance the air conditioning in New York City cabs,” said TLC Chairwoman Diane McGrath-McKechnie.”Most of the cars are new, so the AC systems in front are really quite good and would be good in back except for the partitions.”

She said the agency is trying to decide on a plan so the device can be installed in all new cabs hitting the road for the first time this summer. TLC officials also are looking at ways to improve air conditioning in older cabs. 

The NYC TLC has been wrestling with taxi partition problems since 1968.  This 20 yr old (at the time - 1998) A/C problem is insignificant compared to losing all your teeth in a collision, or losing your life.
