BILL NUMBER:S4820

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the vehicle and traffic law, in
relation to tire safety

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS OF BILL: This proposal adds a new subdivision
(d) to paragraph 35 of section 375 of the vehicle and traffic law.

JUSTIFICATION: This legislation would prohibit a tire repair from
being made to a tire that would not pass the New York State motor
vehicle inspection. Improper tire repairs pose a safety risk to
motorists. Repairing a tire that would not pass a New York State motor
vehicle inspection would greatly increase the risk of tire failure.
Improperly repaired tires can fail while in service, which may result
in a vehicle crash and cause serious personal injury or death.

A tire will fail a New York State motor vehicle inspection if the
tread is worn to less than 2/32 of an inch, the tire has a fabric
break or a cut in excess of one inch in any direction and is deep
enough to reach the body cords, the tire has visible bumps, bulges or
knows, the tire has any portion of the ply or cord structure exposed
or the tire is marked for specific non-highway uses. In any case, a
tire will only fail an inspection if it is a badly damaged tire that
should not be driven on for safety reasons. If a person attempts to
repair a tire that would not pass inspection, it is in the best
interest of public safety to not allow a tire repair to be performed.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: New bill

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS FOR STATE AND LOCAL GOVERNMENTS: None

EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately.
