From the Daily News:
A bill passed by the City Council Monday will require restaurants and other businesses regulated by the Health Department to post a “quick response” code by next year that can be scanned with a smartphone to pull up instant information about the business.
But the bar codes won’t be on the letter grades posted in restaurant windows. They’ll be inside, on permits that are often posted behind the bar.
Putting them on letter grades would cost more since it would mean printing the grades individually for each restaurant, but Council Speaker Christine Quinn said she’d like to eventually put codes in the window.
What would have become of society if they hadn't passed this? What if you don't have a smartphone? And if they're posted behind the bar, how would you get to them to scan them?
Homelessness, lack of police, problems in parks? Who cares? We simply must know if there's soap in the employee bathroom!
