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The new law also will prevent future accessibility signs from using the word “handicapped,” a term advocates say is outdated and offensive to the wheelchair-bound.

Why is there a stick figure of a guy pooping?
Never delude yourself into thinking you're "influencing" or making a difference on the internet. It is an ephemeral pleasure.

Maybe they should try and get the MUTCD amended as well to make that the national handicapped sign.  /sarc
Trump does not represent the will of the people.  If we really wanted to respect the decision of "the people," then Clinton would be the president-elect, not Trump, for the simple reason that she won the popular vote.

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