BILL NUMBER:S2463

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the vehicle and traffic law, in
relation to allowing "Safe-Teen-NY Driver" stickers on license plates
of vehicles driven by persons under the age of eighteen

PURPOSE: Allows that "Safe-Teen-NY Driver" stickers be placed on
license plates of motor vehicles driven by individuals who are under
eighteen years old or parents.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

Section 1 Section 507 of the vehicle and traffic law is amended by
adding a new subdivision 6; Display of permit sticker.

Section 2. This act shall take effect on the one hundred eightieth day
after it shall have become a law, provided that the commissioner of
motor vehicles is immediately authorized and directed to promulgate,
amend and/or repeal any rules and regulations necessary to implement
the provisions of this act on its effective date.

JUSTIFICATION: The leading cause of death among teens is motor
vehicle crashes, and the risk of these crashes is higher among 16 to
19 year olds than among any other age group. By mandating that every
individual under the age of eighteen, who holds a learner's permit, a
DJ license, or an MJ license, as well as the parents and legal
guardians of such individuals, display a "Safe-Teen-NY Driver"
sticker, it creates better awareness on the roads by allowing other
drivers notice that a new driver is near them. Creating awareness that
inexperienced drivers are on the road, gives other drivers the time
and notice to take extra precautions.
