NY: Red Light on Greener Cabs

Judge gives red light to green cabs in NYC


A federal judge blocked the city Friday from requiring all new taxicabs to be fuel-efficient hybrids, hampering Mayor Michael Bloomberg's ambitious goal to make all yellow cabs green by 2012.

The preliminary ruling, released a day before a Saturday deadline, decided the regulations were pre-empted by federal law.

Bloomberg said he was "very disappointed" and blasted the ruling for relying on "archaic Washington regulations" that keep New York and other cities "from choosing to create cleaner air." He said the city was exploring options to appeal.
