The Taxi and Limousine Commission said the driver broke a rule that says prohibits any "act that is against the best interest of the public." The Anti-Defamation Leage of New York issued a statement praising the decision. "By openly displaying this hate symbol identified with Adolf Hitler and the Nazi Party while operating a New York City taxicab, the driver sent a frightening and offensive message to New Yorkers about who might be welcome – and unwelcome - in the taxicab he was driving," the ADL said in a statement posted on its website. The ADL had previously sent a letter to the TLC saying it was “extremely disturbed by this provocative display."
