New York City's future cabs will have a different sound.

The Bloomberg administration wants Nissan to create a more friendly sounding horn.

Nissan was selected to create to next generation of cabs.

The city wants those cabs to include a "low annoyance" horn, but no one is quite sure what it should sound like.

The city also wants cabs to have an exterior colored light that turns on whenever the horn is used.
