TITLE OF BILL:
to amend the vehicle and traffic law, in relation to certain
registrations of vehicles
To eliminate the additional attachment that is currently required of
farm plated vehicle registration. This attachment must be kept with
the vehicle registration at all times and creates onerous burdens on
Vehicle and Traffic Law Section 401 Subdivision 13 is amended to
remove the additional vehicle registration requirement of attaching
farm vehicle certification to the farm vehicle registration and
having to make such documentation available at all times.
This bill would reduce the unnecessary and cumbersome paperwork
associated with farm plated vehicles and would help alleviate the
regulatory burden the agricultural community already wrestles with.
Farm plates provide New York producers with the opportunity to obtain
a reduced rate for vehicle and plate registration for vehicles used
exclusively in agricultural production. Currently, farm plated
vehicles are restricted to travel within a 25-mile radius of the farm
for their business needs such as traversing between fields, delivery
to/from a landfill and necessary repair and maintenance of the farm
vehicle at a repair shop.
While the 25-mile travel restriction is based on and specific to the
farm address listed on the farm vehicle's registration, the farmer
must file additional paperwork specifically addressing all points of
destination for that specific registered farm vehicle. This
information must then be kept on file with the vehicle registration
as an attachment. Each time the farmer acquires
additional land or finds it necessary to travel to an alternate
destination in order to conduct business, he/she must file another
document with the Department of Motor Vehicles which expends time and
staff resources on behalf of the farmer and the State.
With state law already strictly designating use of farm plated
vehicles to within 25 miles of the farm that the vehicle is
registered to, the additional documentation and maintenance of such
paperwork with the State is duplicative and unnecessary. The repeal
of this requirement would allow our farm community to focus their
valuable time planting and harvesting crops throughout vital months
of the year instead of complying with red tape.
None to the state.
This act shall take effect immediately.
