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The new law also will prevent future accessibility signs from using the word “handicapped,” a term advocates say is outdated and offensive to the wheelchair-bound.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?
I know you were afraid. Who wouldn't be? War, terror, disease. There were a myriad of problems which conspired to corrupt your reason and rob you of your common sense. Fear got the best of you, and in your panic you turned to the now high chancellor, Adam Sutler. He promised you order, he promised you peace, and all he demanded in return was your silent, obedient consent.

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.
