|New York City Wi-Fi Kiosks Said to Violate Civil Rights|
|By Jack O’Dwyer|
The kiosks violate the Americans with Disabilities Act, the New York City Human Rights Law and the New York State Human Rights Law by subjecting citizens, including those with “sensitivity to electromagnetic radiation and many other medical conditions and pregnant women” to radiation, says the EMF Safety Network.
“City officials who authorize this scheme would be committing Public Endangerment in the Second Degree,” says EMF.
Under NYC Human Rights Law, those with electromagnetic sensitivities and most medical conditions would not be able to heed the advice of their own physicians, it adds.
“If a hotspot is put on the street near a home or critical institution, many people will not be able to access the sidewalk to access the building in question without getting serious symptoms and violating doctors’ orders,” said EMF.
