BILL NUMBER: S1673

TITLE OF BILL :
An act to amend the insurance law, in relation to liability for
vehicles damaged by emergency vehicles or vehicles being pursued by a
law enforcement official


SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS :
This bill amends the Insurance Law by amending ยง3411, whereby no
vehicle liability insurance shall require payment of a deductible for
damages occurring, through no fault of the insured, as a result of an
accident with a snow removal vehicle. The bill also provides that the
insurance carrier is not prohibited from pursuing recovery from the
responsible party or his insurer.

JUSTIFICATION :
During snow emergency situations, official snow removal vehicles
occasionally damage parked vehicles during the course of their duties.
Any resulting accident is unfortunate, but the added burden of paying
for the deductible is unfair to the private citizen whose vehicle is
damaged through no fault of his own. This bill would protect against
the imposition of additional financial hardship on an innocent
motorist.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS :
None.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY :
2005-06: Senate Insurance Committee
2007-08: Senate Insurance Committee

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