JUSTIFICATION: The New York State Harbormaster & Bay Constable Association have raised a concern that NYS Navigation Law does not exempt bona fide law enforcement agencies from deviating from the State Law when responding to emergencies or in pursuit of law enforcement activities. Such exemptions currently exist in the NYS Vehicle and Traffic Law with regards to police and emergency vehicles.
