BILL NUMBER:S3225

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the vehicle and traffic law, in relation to providing certain
penalties for certain traffic infractions by drivers with certain under
age license classifications

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
Section 1 adds a new subdivision (i) to
section 1800 of the Vehicle and Traffic Law to provide that every
person convicted of a violation of Vehicle and Traffic Law 501(3) and
501-B(2), shall, in addition to any other penalties
permitted by law, have his or her license suspended for a period of
ninety days for a first conviction, and for a period of one year for
a second or subsequent conviction.

Section 2 provides that this act shall take effect on the first of
November next succeeding the date it shall have become law.

PURPOSE AND JUSTIFICATION:
It is becoming increasingly clear that
young drivers, particularly new drivers with their restricted DJ and
MJ licenses, are far more likely to be involved in accidents.
Recognizing this danger for inexperienced drivers, New York State has
limitations on the hours such new drivers can operate a car without a
parent or guardian, as well as the number of passengers that can be
carried. Unfortunately, the current penalties for violations of these
rules does not seem to be sufficient to deter young people, who
continue to drive after hours and with too many of their friends in
their vehicles. This bill, requiring mandatory license suspensions,
will be a meaningful deterrent to young people who may be tempted to
violate the restrictions of their drivers licenses.

EXISTING LAW:
Vehicle and Traffic Law sections 501 and 501-B
sets forth various restrictions and conditions for young drivers.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
2007/08 - S.6456 -- RULES/TRANSPORTATION
2010 - S.3017 -- TRANSPORTATION

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
None to state.

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