BILL NUMBER: S764

TITLE OF BILL :
An act to amend the insurance law, in relation to authorizing
insurance premium reductions for private passenger vehicles
retrofitted with daytime running lamps

PURPOSE :
To provide for an actuarially appropriate premium discount on auto
insurance for vehicles that are retrofitted with daytime running
lamps.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS :
Amends Insurance Law section 2336(g) to provide that all private
passenger automobile insurers may offer an actuarially appropriate
premium discount for auto insurance coverage for motor vehicles that
are retrofitted with daytime running lamps. Further, that the
Superintendent, after consulting with the department of motor
vehicles, shall promulgate by rule, qualifications and standards for
the installation of such lamps. The purpose of establishing
qualifications for the installation of retrofitted lamps is so that
this equipment is properly installed.

JUSTIFICATION :
Since the 1920's when motor vehicles first became commonplace on this
nation's roads, the number of fatalities per mile driven has decreased
dramatically because of improvements in safety features as well as
better design standards. Insurance studies indicate that the use of
daytime running lamps has significantly reduced multiple vehicle
accidents by 23% in Sweden, 40% in Norway and 37% in Finland. This
measure encourages the installation of such lamps to help lower the
accident rate in New York and reduce the loss of life and property
damage.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY :
S.1272/A.5512 of 2007-2008
S.5477A.A.10758 of 2005-2006
Similar to S.321-A/A.3717 of 2003-04

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS :
None.

EFFECTIVE DATE :
This act shall take effect on the first of January next succeeding the
date on which it shall have become a law.
