Wikipedia edit

I'm waiting to see what Wikipedia thinks of my edit.
I added the part that starts with "NYC Doctors".
Crash test[edit source]
As of 2012, New York taxis are only crash-tested before being equipped as a cab. However, the new "Taxi of Tomorrow", the Nissan NV200, would also have its partition be crash-tested while installed inside the vehicle.[90]

Several NYC Doctors presented a video to the TLC concerning taxis' interior partitions' occupant interior protection safety. (See Wikipedia "rough ride" https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rough_ride_(police_brutality)). Taxi partition designs utilized are not certified to be in compliance with federal motor vehicle safety standards, much like police cruiser partitions. The risk of injury from uncertified, noncomplying interior partitions in taxis is expected to decline, now that cab owners have the option of (more expensive) camera security as an alternative to installing a partition in order to pass the TLC inspection.
