BILL NUMBER:S6385 REVISED 1/23/14

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the vehicle and traffic law, in
relation to the surrender of certificates of registration and number
plates of all motor vehicles which a person has registered where such
person has a suspended or revoked license

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:

Section one of the bill amends the vehicle and traffic law by adding a
new section 403-c. The section would require any person who has had
their license suspended or revoked pursuant to the vehicle and traffic
law to surrender the certificates of registration and number plates of
all motor vehicles which such person has registered with the
Department of Motor Vehicles. Such revocation shall remain in effect
as long as the suspension or revocation of such driver's license.

Section two of the bill is the effective date.

JUSTIFICATION: In recent months, more attention has been paid to the
fact that drivers with suspended licenses in New York State are still
getting behind the wheel - and killing people. Ten percent of all
crashes in New York are caused by drivers with suspended or revoked
licenses, and 75 percent of those drivers still get behind the wheel.

Often these drivers are suspended for reckless, dangerous, or drunken
driving and are a menace to not only pedestrians like Noshat Nahian,
the eight year old third grader at PS 152 who lost his life when he
was hit by a tractor trailer while crossing Northern Boulevard at 61st
Street, but also to other drivers on the road.

Licenses are suspended for a reason and suspending these license
plates would keep dangerous drivers off the road.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: New Bill

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS FOR STATE AND LOCAL GOVERNMENTS: None.

EFFECTIVE DATE: This act should take effect on the one hundred
eightieth day after it shall have become a law.
