BILL NUMBER:S1362

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the vehicle and traffic law, in relation to extending the
maximum length of vehicles

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL:
To extend the maximum length of
vehicles to allow some specialized maintenance vehicles the ability
to operate without penalty.

JUSTIFICATION:
In 2003 New York State authorized recreational vehicles
(RV's) up to 45 feet in length to travel on highways to aid tourism
in the state. However, the law neglected to include professional
vehicles that perform routine and important tasks throughout the
state. Many citizens depend on the service abilities of these
vehicles, which extend past the current allowable length to allow for
increased safety and equipment. The current law is out of step with
the needs of its citizenry. If untrained recreational drivers are
able to legally navigate on state roads, then professionals should be
allowed the same allowance.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
2010 - S.7970/A.11189

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
None.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
This act shall take effect on the thirtieth day after
it shall have become law.
