BILL NUMBER: S414A


TITLE OF BILL :
An act to amend the vehicle and traffic law, in relation to parking
spaces for handicapped persons


PURPOSE :
Requires that instruction in the laws relating to handicapped parking
be included in the pre-licensing driver's course.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS :
Amends paragraph (b) of subdivision 4 of section 502 of the vehicle
and traffic law, as amended by chapter 585 of the laws of 2002, by
adding a new paragraph (h).

JUSTIFICATION :
Violations of the handicapped parking laws are frequent,
inconsiderate, and unnecessary. Before receiving a driver's license,
New Yorkers should be taught the laws pertaining to handicapped

sensitivity of all drivers.
