An act
to amend the vehicle and traffic law, in relation to requiring signage
alerting motorists of red light cameras;
and providing for the repeal of such provisions upon expiration thereof

PURPOSE:
This legislation would require signage alerting motorists of
red light cameras in the areas where red light camera demonstration
programs have been authorized.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
The vehicle and traffic law is amended to add a

cameras in the areas where red light camera demonstration programs
have been authorized. Such signage will warn motorists that a traffic
controlled signal photo violation monitoring device is operating at
such intersection.

JUSTIFICATION:
Red light cameras are installed to improve intersection
safety by reducing the number of red light violations. The placement
of warning signs will enhance this purpose by warning motorists of
their presence and will lead to safer roadways for all New York
drivers.

This legislation requires that signs be posted at intersections
equipped with red light camera.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
New bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
To be determined.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
This act shall take effect on the one hundred
twentieth day after it shall have become a law and shall expire
December 1, 2014 when upon such date the provisions of this act shall
be deemed repealed. Effective immediately, the addition, amendment
and/or repeal of any rule or regulation necessary for the
implementation of this act on its effective date is authorized to be
made on or before such date.
