Let’s Celebrate the Retirement of Mandatory Vehicle Retirement!
It is with great pleasure we report that, as of today, the TLC will be suspending its enforcement, until further notice, of the rule specific to mandatory Black Car vehicle retirement. As you may know, back in April of 2008, the TLC adopted a set of new rules which included a Black Car vehicle retirement component.
The rules, which initially took effect in May of 2008, addressed all vehicle model years, and were subsequently modified in 2015 to establish that Black Cars model year 2013 and newer would not be subject to any type of mandatory vehicle retirement. Black Cars model year 2012 and below, however, would be subject to a uniform seven-year retirement structure.
