Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Friday signed a bill into law requiring future wheelchair-accessible signs to depict a wheelchair in motion, rather than the sedentary stick-figure image that has marked parking spots and ramps for decades.

The new law also will prevent future accessibility signs from using the word “handicapped,” a term advocates say is outdated and offensive to the wheelchair-bound.

"In the excitement of great popular elections, deciding the policy of the country, and its vast patronage, frauds will be committed, if a chance is given for them." —Richard Henry Dana, Jr.

“No government program ever dies of its own accord.” ―unknown

Maybe they should try and get the MUTCD amended as well to make that the national handicapped sign.  /sarc

It's actually a graphic of Cuomo fleeing from his ethics problems.
