Sex ads coming off NYC taxis

NEW YORK, March 27 (UPI) -- The company that places advertising on New York City taxis says it will remove risque ads for strip clubs in May.

Clear Channel Outdoor, the company responsible for the advertising on New York's 7,000 yellow cabs, said it's company policy not to use sex ads.

However, Clear Channel Outdoor said that when it took over Medallion Taxi Media last year, it had a contractual obligation to run the advertising the other company had contracted for, the New York Post reported Sunday.

"I'm not making any moral judgment about these ads," said Clear Channel Outdoor President and Chief Executive Officer Paul Meyer. "For us, it's bad business to run them. The last contract will wind down in May, and at that point, there will be no more of these ads on our cabs."
