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The new law also will prevent future accessibility signs from using the word “handicapped,” a term advocates say is outdated and offensive to the wheelchair-bound.

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.
