The 2017 TLC Safety Honor Roll is the fourth annual event recognizing TLC licensed drivers who have outstanding records of safe driving over many years and millions of miles behind the wheel.
The TLC has high standards for its almost 170,000 licensed drivers, and on a mile-per-mile basis TLC licensed drivers are some of the safest drivers on New York City streets. The TLC reviewed all of its licensed drivers’ records and identified drivers who have, over four or more years, not had a single crash resulting in an injury, a single traffic violation, or a single violation of TLC safety related rules.
The 420 drivers on the 2017 TLC Safety Honor Roll represent a truly elite group. The TLC Safety Honor Roll also honors taxi fleets, car service bases, and commuter van companies with superior safety records. These businesses play a crucial role in promoting safe driving practices in the for-hire transportation industry.
The TLC Accessibility Honor Roll recognizes drivers who have distinguished themselves as excellent providers of accessible service to our city’s wheelchair users. These yellow taxi drivers represent the highest and most consistent trip providers in the Accessible Dispatch program.
For the first time this year, TLC will also honor drivers for excellent customer service. These drivers went above and beyond with their passengers who sent their compliments to TLC.
Taken as a whole, this year’s honorees are leading the way in TLC regulated industries, improving service to the riding public and making our streets safer places to live and work.
