BILL NUMBER:S97

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the vehicle and traffic law, in relation to directing the
commissioner of motor vehicles to provide motorcycle owners with a
notice informing such applicant of the laws regarding unidentifiable
motor vehicle parts

PURPOSE:
To ensure that motorcyclists are aware of the laws governing
unidentifiable motor vehicle parts in New York State.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
Section 1 provides that upon the issuance of a certificate of
registration, the commissioner shall provide a motorcycle owner with
a notice regarding the laws governing unidentifiable motorcycle
parts, in such form and manner as the commissioner may prescribe.

JUSTIFICATION:
There have been instances in New York State where motorcycles have
been seized from innocent owners, on the grounds that the vehicle,
identification numbers (VINs) of such motorcycles or parts thereof
have been destroyed, removed, altered, defaced or covered in a manner
so as to be effectually concealed. Often, motorcycle owners are not
aware of this law and the process that exists to rectify VIN
discrepancies through the Department of Motor Vehicles.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
2011-12: S.7710/A.9975-A Referred to Rules

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
To be determined.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
