BILL NUMBER:S2462

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the vehicle and traffic law, in
relation to creating distinctive plates for the New York city fire
riders motorcycle club

PURPOSE: To allow for distinctive plates to be issued for members of
the New York City Fire Riders Motor Cycle Club.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: This bill amends the vehicle and traffic law
by adding a new section 404-x to allow the Commissioner of the
Department of Motor Vehicles to issue distinctive plates to the New
York City Fire Riders Motor Cycle Club. A person requesting such
plates must be a resident of New York State and an active or retired
member of the club. The plates shall be issued upon payment of the
regular registration fee and an additional annual service charge of
$15 shall be charged for each plate.

JUSTIFICATION: The New York City Fire Riders Motor Cycle Club is a
fraternal Fire Department of New York City organization with over 300
members. The New York City Fire Riders Motorcycle Club was established
in January of 1985. The club was created to unite firefighters and
promote safe motorcycling. The original group consisted of 16 members
and there is now a chapter in Nassau County. The New York City Fire
Riders Motorcycle Club is also affiliated with the Red Knights
International Motorcycle Club and the Wind & Fire Motorcycle Club.
These affiliations present the club with many opportunities to travel
into Canada to fellowship within the brotherhood of firefighters. This
legislation would allow for the issuance of a distinctive license
plate for active and retired firefighters belonging to the New York
City Fire Riders Motor Cycle Club. These club members would like to
display their pride as present and former New York City Firefighters
who are also proud motorcycle owners. This bill shows New York State's
appreciation toward these particular individuals who bravely serve or
have bravely served the residents of the City of New York.
