Lack of Accessible Signals in NYC Is Sued In SDNY Amid LA and Seattle Comparisons

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

SDNY COURTHOUSE, Oct 2 – The ongoing lack of accessible pedestrian signals (APS) in New York City was the subject of an oral argument on October 2. U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Paul A. Engelmayer held the argument. Inner City Press covered it.

  The plaintiffs have argued that NYC is pitiful and that "in comparison Phoenix has a policy requiring APS in all new pedestrian signals... San Antonio, Seattle and LA do so for all new pedestrian signals AND all replacement of old signals." They have moved for partial summary judgment.

  During the oral argument, Judge Engelmayer zeroed in on Broadway on the Upper West Side.   

The City of New York on the other hand is arguing that "the installation of APS at every intersection that contains a pedestrian signal would fundamentally alter the natures of the APS Program and would impose undue financial and administrative burdens."

The case is American Council of the Blind of New York, Inc. et al v. City of New York et al., 18-cv-5792 (Engelmayer)
