City Council Passes 'Cooper's Law' to Yank Cab Licenses After Crashes

Published May 29th, 2014 DNAinfo New York By Emily Frost @efrost1

City Council passed legislation Thursday to revoke the license of taxi drivers who kill or critically injure a person after being convicted of breaking a traffic law.

"Cooper's Law" was introduced by City Councilwoman Helen Rosenthal in response to the death of 9-year-old Cooper Stock, who was killed in January when a cabdriver failed to yield to him while he was crossing the street with his father.
