BILL NUMBER:S1506

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the vehicle and traffic law, in relation to the enforcement of
the offense of operating a motor vehicle with a suspended license when
such operation occurs in a parking lot

PURPOSE: To amend a current anomaly in the vehicle
and traffic law and
provide for the enforcement of operating a motor vehicle with a
suspended license in a parking lot.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: This bill amends Section 511
of the Vehicle and
Traffic Law by striking the stipulation, "upon a public highway" from
paragraph (a) of subdivision 1 of Section 511. It also adds a new
subdivision 8 which makes enforcement of the operation of a motor
vehicle while a license is suspended or revoked an enforceable
offense when such motor vehicle operation takes place on private
roads open to motor vehicle traffic or a parking lot. A parking lot
is defined as any area or areas of private property. including a
driveway, near or contiguous to and provided in connection with
premises and used as a means of access to and egress from a public
highway to such premises and having a capacity for the parking of
four or more motor vehicles.

JUSTIFICATION: Currently, the "parking lot as a
public highway"
interpretation of the vehicle and traffic law is only applicable to
Section 1192 of the Vehicle and Traffic Law, which pertains to DWI
related offenses. This means that a driver with a suspended license
could become involved in a serious accident in a parking lot, yet
face no legal ramifications for their actions.

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

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None.

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