Joe Lhota: Horse Carriages In NYC Should Be 'Motorized' (VIDEO)

Hours after a horse carriage flipped over in Columbus Circle, Republican New York City mayoral candidate Joe Lhota told HuffPost Live that he thinks carriages should be motorized.

"I don't think the horses should be there," he told host Marc Lamont Hill. "I think we need to motorize the carriages."

Lhota and his opponent, Democrat Bill de Blasio, have both made statements saying they'd ban the use of horses for carriages in New York City so, come January, horse carriage drivers may need to start looking for other work.
