BILL NUMBER:S5441

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the highway law, in relation to
designating a portion of the state highway system in the town of
Tonawanda, county of Erie, as the "New York State Trooper Kevin Dobson
Memorial Bridge"

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: The purpose of this bill is to
memorialize the bridge on Interstate 290, which crosses New York State
Route 425 as the "New York State Trooper Kevin Dobson Memorial
Bridge".

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:

Section one of the bill adds a new section 343-yy to the Highway Law,
which states that a portion of the state highway system will be
designated as "New York State Trooper Kevin Dobson Memorial Bridge "

Section two states that the commissioner of transportation shall
provide further installation and maintenance of adequate signing of
the state highway system as designated by section one of this act

JUSTIFICATION: The purpose of this bill is to designate the 1-290
bridge overpass, crossing over New York Route 425 in Tonawanda, New
York, as the "New York State Trooper Kevin Dobson Memorial Bridge".

New York State Trooper Dobson, a 13-year veteran, was killed on the
Youngman Highway in the Town of Tonawanda in March of 2011 in the line
of duty. The accident came just three months after the state passed
the "Move Over" law, which requires motorists to switch into the left
lane when they see a law enforcement vehicle on the shoulder of a
highway with its emergency lights activated. Trooper Kevin Dobson is
remembered as a loving father and dedicated officer who was doing his
duty to protect lives and our community.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: None.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: Minimal

EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately
