BILL NUMBER:S1166 TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the vehicle and traffic law, in relation to parking spaces for handicapped persons PURPOSE: Requires that instruction in the laws relating to handicapped parking be included in the pre-licensing driver's course. SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Amends paragraph (b) of subdivision 4 of section 502 of the vehicle and traffic law, as amended by chapter 585 of the laws of 2002, by adding a new paragraph (i). JUSTIFICATION: Violations of the handicapped parking laws are frequent, inconsiderate, and unnecessary. Before receiving a driver's license, New Yorkers should be taught the laws pertaining to handicapped parking. Making more New Yorkers aware of these laws should reduce the number of illegal parking violations, and improve awareness and sensitivity of all drivers.
