AN ACT to amend the vehicle and traffic law, in relation to  authorizing
  the  department  of  environmental  conservation  to establish certain
  speed limits

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

  Section  1.  Subdivision  5 of section 1630 of the vehicle and traffic
law, as amended by chapter 563 of the laws of 2002, is amended  to  read
as follows:
  5. Establishment of maximum and minimum speed limits at which vehicles
may proceed on or along such highways. No such maximum speed limit shall
be  established  at  less  than  twenty-five miles per hour, except that
school speed limits may be established at not less  than  fifteen  miles
per hour, for a distance not to exceed one thousand three hundred twenty
feet,  on  a  highway  passing  a school building, entrance or exit of a
school abutting on the highway, and except that, with respect to  bridge
and  elevated  structures  that  are a part of any such highway, a lower
maximum speed limit may be established if it  is  determined  that  such
lower  maximum speed limit is the maximum speed limit which may be main-
tained without structural damage to such bridge or structure, and except
that, with respect to any highway under the jurisdiction of  the  office
of  parks, recreation and historic preservation, other than a parkway as
defined in subdivision seventeen of section 1.03 of  the  parks,  recre-
ation  and  historic preservation law, the department of agriculture and
markets, THE DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL CONSERVATION, or the industrial
exhibit authority, a maximum speed limit of not less than ten miles  per
hour may be established on any portion thereof, if it is determined that
such  lower maximum speed limit is necessary to assure the safety of the
public, and except that, with respect to any highway having toll plazas,
a maximum speed limit of not less than five miles per hour may be estab-
lished for passage through such toll plazas.
  S 2. This act shall take effect immediately.
