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

  Section 1. The vehicle and traffic law is  amended  by  adding  a  new
section 1111-d to read as follows:
  S  1111-D.  OWNER  LIABILITY  FOR  FAILURE  OF OPERATOR TO COMPLY WITH
TRAFFIC-CONTROL INDICATIONS. (A) 1. NOTWITHSTANDING ANY OTHER  PROVISION
OF  LAW,  THE  CITY  OF MT. VERNON IS HEREBY AUTHORIZED AND EMPOWERED TO
ADOPT AND AMEND A LOCAL LAW OR ORDINANCE  ESTABLISHING  A  DEMONSTRATION
PROGRAM  IMPOSING MONETARY LIABILITY ON THE OWNER OF A VEHICLE FOR FAIL-
URE OF AN OPERATOR THEREOF TO COMPLY WITH TRAFFIC-CONTROL INDICATIONS IN
SUCH CITY IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE PROVISIONS OF THIS SECTION. SUCH DEMON-
STRATION PROGRAM SHALL EMPOWER SUCH CITY TO INSTALL AND  OPERATE  TRAFF-
IC-CONTROL  SIGNAL  PHOTO  VIOLATION-MONITORING  DEVICES AT NO MORE THAN
TWENTY INTERSECTIONS WITHIN SUCH CITY AT ANY ONE TIME.
  2. SUCH DEMONSTRATION PROGRAM SHALL UTILIZE NECESSARY TECHNOLOGIES  TO
ENSURE,  TO  THE  EXTENT  PRACTICABLE, THAT PHOTOGRAPHS PRODUCED BY SUCH
TRAFFIC-CONTROL SIGNAL  PHOTO  VIOLATION-MONITORING  SYSTEMS  SHALL  NOT
INCLUDE IMAGES THAT IDENTIFY THE DRIVER, THE PASSENGERS, OR THE CONTENTS
OF  THE  VEHICLE.  PROVIDED, HOWEVER, THAT NO NOTICE OF LIABILITY ISSUED
PURSUANT TO THIS SECTION SHALL BE DISMISSED SOLELY BECAUSE A  PHOTOGRAPH
OR  PHOTOGRAPHS  ALLOW FOR THE IDENTIFICATION OF THE CONTENTS OF A VEHI-
CLE, PROVIDED THAT SUCH CITY HAS MADE A REASONABLE EFFORT TO COMPLY WITH
THE PROVISIONS OF THIS PARAGRAPH.
  (B) IN ANY SUCH CITY WHICH HAS ADOPTED A LOCAL LAW OR ORDINANCE PURSU-
ANT TO SUBDIVISION (A) OF THIS SECTION, THE OWNER OF A VEHICLE SHALL  BE
LIABLE  FOR  A  PENALTY IMPOSED PURSUANT TO THIS SECTION IF SUCH VEHICLE
WAS USED OR OPERATED WITH  THE  PERMISSION  OF  THE  OWNER,  EXPRESS  OR

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