Earlier this week, the New York State Court of Appeals stopped Bloomberg's proposed deal to set a uniform standard make and model of car for New York City taxi drivers. The New York Times reports:

The move essentially pauses efforts to phase in the model, the Nissan NV200, while the court decides the appeal, brought by a prominent taxi group. The city’s Taxi and Limousine Commission had set April 20th as the date after which most taxi owners would have to switch to the new vehicle when they retire their cabs.

While there are many pros and cons to consider, I for one am glad we will be keeping these ugly Nissan minivans off our City streets for a little bit longer.
