  THE  PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-

  Section 1. The highway law is amended by adding a new section 205-c to

  A. "LOW-VOLUME ROAD" SHALL MEAN A  TOWN  HIGHWAY  OR  PORTION  THEREOF
LOCATED  IN A TOWN, WHEN SUCH HIGHWAY HAS AN AVERAGE DAILY TRAFFIC COUNT
OF LESS THAN FOUR HUNDRED MOTOR VEHICLES PER DAY. SUCH  TERM  SHALL  NOT
APPLY  TO  ANY  HIGHWAY  OR ROAD OR PORTION THEREOF WHICH HAS PREVIOUSLY
BEEN ABANDONED PURSUANT TO SUBDIVISION ONE OF SECTION TWO  HUNDRED  FIVE
OF  THIS  ARTICLE  BECAUSE  IT SHALL NOT HAVE BEEN USED OR TRAVELED AS A
