Is this a requirement? I dont remember FHV vehicles having to display their license like a yellow does, is this new?
Here is the law and I do not see it applying to a black car doing Uber, this specifically says "if the vehicle is a Street Hail Livery" which is the green cabs.It's in the FHV rules, chapter 54 I think. You definitely have to have it out for display at the airports, Port Authority tickets those who don't.
Actually I am questioning the accuracy of what I just said. Check FHV rules which is Chapter 55 Section 23 and it does explain what they want.That's a relief. I can't find these holders for my life.
Thats actually a great point, anything stuck to that area becomes a projectile when the airbag goes off.Hey slowmo, careful putting those frames you are looking for anywhere near or in front of an airbag. Get a vent magnet for phones on eBay or amazon and stick the metal part on the back of your license.
How about something like this and just figure out a way to keep it attached to the center of the dash? You can get some tape that is for delicate surfaces if youre worried about damage to the interior.That's a relief. I can't find these holders for my life.
Chapter 54 is not for FHV vehicles, its for SHL and Yellows, Chapter 55 is for FHV and has a similar rule but looser.Chapter 54. Section 102.3. Section 2.3. Paragraph 12. The rule states that license must be displayed in an appropriate case. A description of the case can be found in the TLC owners manual. Chapter 12. Section 8.2. Sub section 1.4. It states that if you do not have the appropriate case, you may use an appropriate substitute case until your next scheduled inspection. The definition of a substitute case has not be defined. Since there is no official description of a substitute case I recommend fastening your license with duct tape, black would be your best choice of color. If you drive a green cab, mint green tape would also be appropriate. Be careful that the tape does not cover any lettering on your license. If anyone gets a summons for not having an appropriately displayed license, I will be willing to make myself available as an expert witness in a TLC hearing.
