They need to ban this industry already. I hope the horse and taxi driver are okay.
UPDATE: Okay, I don’t know how accurate this is since it’s coming from the “esteemed” NY Post, but apparently the cab driver suffered a seizure, jumped the curb, and plowed into the carriage. Fortunately, all parties—carriage driver included—are okay and suffered non-life threatening injuries.
And I repeat: carriage horses do not belong on streets congested with 21st century transportation. It’s not romantic, it’s not quaint and charming, it’s dangerous.
