Introduced  by  Sen.  DIAZ  --  read twice and ordered printed, and when
  printed to be committed to the Committee on Transportation

AN ACT to amend the vehicle and traffic law, in  relation  to  requiring
  the use of rear wheel guards on certain vehicles

  THE  PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section 1. This act shall be known and may  be  cited  as  the  "Amara
Diarrassouba life saving truck guard law".
  S 2. Section 375 of the vehicle and traffic law is amended by adding a
new subdivision 10-f to read as follows:
  10-F.  EVERY TRUCK, TRACTOR, AND TRACTOR-TRAILER OR SEMITRAILER COMBI-
NATION REGISTERED IN THIS STATE HAVING A GROSS VEHICLE WEIGHT RATING  OF
TWENTY-SIX THOUSAND POUNDS OR MORE, AND A CONVENTIONAL CAB CONFIGURATION
IN  WHICH MORE THAN HALF OF THE ENGINE LENGTH IS FORWARD OF THE FOREMOST
POINT OF THE WINDSHIELD BASE AND  THE  STEERING  WHEEL  HUB  IS  IN  THE
FORWARD  QUARTER  OF THE VEHICLE LENGTH, WHENEVER OPERATED WITHIN A CITY
HAVING A POPULATION OF ONE MILLION OR MORE ON HIGHWAYS OTHER THAN  CONT-
ROLLED-ACCESS  HIGHWAYS, SHALL BE EQUIPPED WITH REAR WHEEL GUARDS ON THE
REAR WHEELS OF SUCH VEHICLE OR COMBINATION OF VEHICLES.
  S 3. This act shall be deemed repealed if any federal  agency  or  any
court  of  competent jurisdiction finally determines that this act would
render New York state ineligible for the receipt of federal funds.
  S 4. Severability. If any clause,  sentence,  subdivision,  paragraph,
section or part of this act be adjudged by any court of competent juris-
diction to be invalid, such judgment shall not affect, impair or invali-
date  the  remainder  thereof, but shall be confined in its operation to
the clause, sentence, subdivision, paragraph, section  or  part  thereof
directly  involved  in the controversy in which such judgment shall have
been rendered.
  S 5. This act shall take effect on the one hundred eightieth day after
it shall have become a law; provided, however, that effective immediate-

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
