MEDIA RELEASE: NYCLASS Demands City Revoke License of Horse Carriage Industry Spokesperson for Violating Suspension

Posted by Nyclass on July 08, 2014
WHEN: Tuesday July 8, 1:00 pm
WHERE: Corner of 59th St. and 6th Ave.


Horse carriage industry driver and spokesperson Christina Hansen was videotaped operating her carriage in defiance of the NYPD’s heat-related suspension last Wednesday. NYCLASS supporters will gather on another sweltering day one block away from where Hansen was caught to call on the New York City Department of Consumer Affairs (DCA) to revoke her license.


On Wednesday July 2, the NYPD suspended carriage horse operations because of high temperatures and humidity at approximately 12:37 pm. Hansen was captured on video operating her carriage at 1:54 pm, more than 77 minutes after the suspension was called. See the video here:
