Mayor Bloomberg Pulls Prius Cars Off NYC Streets Following Recall

Following a global recall of 437,000 Prius model cars, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg ordered that they city's 2010 Prius vehicles all stay off of the city streets in order to prevent possible NYC car accidents.

The 181 cars had recently been ordered by the city to join an estimated 23,000 NYC government vehicles. At the time of Bloomberg's announcement, 16 of the cars had arrived for use and six cars were already in use in the New York area by various departments.

The 2010 hybrid cars, which have excellent as mileage and are environmentally friendly, were to be used by a number of government agencies, including environmental agencies and health agencies. However, large-scale Toyota recalls involving faulty floor mats, gas pedals, and accelerators has many worried about the safety of the vehicle.

The city does not own any other recalled Toyota models and won't be pulling any other type of car from its fleet.
