BILL NUMBER:S1497

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the vehicle and traffic law, in relation to aggravated
unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle in the second degree

PURPOSE: This legislation would increase safety on
our State's
roadways by making it easier to prosecute persons who repeatedly
violate the aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section 511 (2)(a)(iv) of the
Vehicle and
Traffic Law, which is an element of aggravated unlicensed operation
in the second degree, is amended to require two or more suspensions
for failure to answer, appear, or pay a fine rather than three or
more separate suspensions.

JUSTIFICATION: Under this legislation a person may be
prosecuted for
aggravated unlicensed operation in the second degree when such person
has two or more suspensions for failure to answer, appear, or pay a
fine. Under current law the person must have had three such
suspensions to be prosecuted for aggravated unlicensed operation of a
motor vehicle in the second degree. The dangers posed by unlicensed
drivers to pedestrians and other motorists in New York State are well
documented. Numerous deaths have been caused by these drivers.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: 1999-2008: Passed Senate;
2009-10: Senate Trans. Committee; 2011-12: Passed Senate.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None.

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